According to Neil deGrasse Tyson, it’s not the best idea to get high in space, so if you were planning on doing this anytime soon, ditch the whole thing. Now seriously, he says that the problem with space is that there are a lot of things that could kill you.
“So if you do anything to alter your understanding of what is reality, that’s not in the interest of your health. So if you want to get high in space, like lock yourself in your cabin and don’t come out because you could break stuff inadvertently. OK? That’s how that goes.”
All this started when a TMZ reported talked to Tyson on the street and asked his opinions about the media scrutiny surrounding Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Elon Musk smoked pot in front of the whole Internet
Last week, Musk was invited on Joe Rogan’s podcast for a hangout session, and this eventually led to the man sipping on whiskey and puffing a joint in front of the whole Internet.
After this, everyone seemed to lose their minds, as expected.
Tyson defended Musk, asking, “Can they leave him alone? Let the man get high if he wants to get high.”
Tyson made sure to clarify his comments about Musk, particularly regarding his threat to take Tesla private.
He said that “You know, he’s got to obey the SEC clearly. But if he doesn’t want to obey the SEC, then he’s got to have a private company, then he can do what he wants.”
Tyson also said that Musk took his company public, so there’s an “accountability” there to the public trust of what goes on on the stock market..”
Tyson added that this is the best thing we have had since Eddison.
This made the TMZ reported ask Tyson what would happen if we smoked weed in space. It’s already a known fact that Tyson has become a quiet advocate for cannabis legalization in recent years.
He added that there is very little that he disagrees with Carl Sagan on. On the other hand, Tyson himself prefers a sober-minded approach to life.
