Elon Musk will not smoke a joint in the video podcast of a famous comedian in the foreseeable future, according to NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine.

Musk publicly smokes marijuana or drinks alcohol as seen on the The Joe Rogan Experience in September. Bridenstine's comments were reported this afternoon by The Atlantic .

The contract has a total value of $ 6.8 billion and provides for both companies to "maintain a drug and alcohol free drug development program."
