After Musk Smokes Weed, Bookies Expect Him To Be Forced To Step Down As CEO In 2018

BetDSI, an online gambling website, is offering a variety of prop bets on Elon Musk after the Tesla CEO smoked marijuana during a live interview with Joe Rogan on Thursday evening.

Oddsmakers at BetDSI expect Musk will be forced to step down as CEO before the end of the year, but they do not expect him to be completely removed from any involvement at Tesla. They also anticipate a termination of contracts between SpaceX and the U.S. Air Force due to the marijuana incident.
