NASA's administrator, Jim Bridenstine, told reporters Thursday that elon Musk, who smokes weeds on the Internet, "was not disturbed by confidence," reports the Atlantic.
The SpaceX music company is subject to NASA's safety reviews after he inhaled hemp for the legendary "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast in September.
Bridenstine has now publicly announced the incident for the first time. He told the journalists' meeting: "I will tell you that it is not useful and it has not inspired confidence, and leaders of these organizations should do it as an example of how to act when you run an organization that will launch American astronauts."
Bridenstina said she personally commissioned a safety report for suppliers of SpaceX and Boeing, first discovered by The Washington Post. But he stressed that he wanted to review their corporate culture before musk-smoked weeds.
His decision affected the tragedy of NASA's history, including the 1967 Apollo 1 fire, which killed three astronauts as well as two spacecraft disasters in 1986 and 2003.

Bridenstina said that the question always arises is whether NASA's culture contributed to these accidents. "What was the culture of our contractors and were there people who brought up the red flag that we did not listen to and eventually this culture contributed to the failure, and in such cases also a disaster?" he said.
The Atlantic Ocean Marina Coren asked Bridgenstein whether Maskuss smoking weeds live online is a red flag. "I think they were not useful," he replied.
Bridgetheater also said that he was "muscular" in conversations about his behavior. "I will tell you that he is faithful to security as anyone, and he understands that this is not a proper behavior, and you will not see it again," he continued.
The business insider contacted SpaceX and NASA's comments.
