The US Securities and Exchange Commission is understood to have already opened an inquiry into Mr Musk's tweets.
Oh, and they also smoked a blunt together and threw back some whiskey!
"I think I tried one once", Musk replied with a laugh.
"Am considering taking Tesla private at $420".
Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton gave his notice on Tuesday that he was resigning less than a month into the job, according to a Friday filing.
Morton joined the electric auto company the day before Musk tweeted that he was considering taking the company private, causing stocks to soar and prompting and a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation from over whether he had funding secured, as he had stated. Musk asked his host after he took out a large joint and lit it up.
Tesla's top accountant announced Friday he was stepping down after a month on the job, citing the electric auto company's frenetic pace. Morton's term of service happened to be a particularly unfortunate month, beginning just the day before Musk announced the stock privatization plan that fizzled out.

Florence becomes hurricane; SE should prep for 'major hit'
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles. A slew of unsafe storms - hurricanes, tropical storms and a typhoon - are now traveling over both the Atlantic and Pacific.
Mr Morton said he still believes strongly in Tesla's "mission and future prospects" and has "no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or its financial reporting".
Long a polarizing figure because of his swashbuckling style, Musk's champions see him as an entrepreneurial genius with the potential to remake the transportation system, while his detractors see him as an egotistical blowhard whose outsized promises have driven unjustified gains in the company's values.
It's not clear whether the reshuffling of executives goes quite that far, but it does address a vacuum that had been developing at the top of the company as several top executives have recently left.
In the Friday filing, Morton said.
"The use of recreational drugs, legal or not, goes against the unspoken rules of being a public CEO", the analyst said in a blog post.
Jerome Guillen, who was responsible for overseeing Tesla's engineering and sales operations, was elevated to the new position of president of automotive operations, while Kevin Kassekert, who had been vice-president of infrastructure development, was appointed as vice-president of people and places, replacing Ms Toledano, who told Bloomberg on Friday she would not return from a leave of absence.
"I'm not a regular smoker of weed, "Tesla, Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk told California comedian Joe Rogan on a podcast late Thursday". Morton had taken over for the company's previous account head, Eric Branderiz, who resigned on March 7 citing "personal reasons". In an email to Buzzfeed earlier this week, Musk repeated his totally unsubstantiated accusations of pedophilia against British cave diver Vernon Unsworth (Unsworth's lawyer calls Musk's comments "vile and false" and vowed to sue Musk for libel).
And to think, he got out even before Musk chose to exceed his expectations still further by blazing up on camera.
