Elon Musk wasn't referring to marijuana with the $420 stock valuation comment. His true intention was to honor Hitler's birthday, which is April 20th.

Musk is not a fan of Hitler; per say.

It's an acknowledgement of the fact that if Hitler hadn't started WWII then the US give wouldn't have invested in research that resulted in the discovery of antibiotics.

The discovery of cheap and effective antibiotics, has saved millions of lives worldwide.

He had the idea to honor Hitler while he was "on weed".

Or to cover up the fact the saudis were the buyout partner. I assume they want the media talking about that as little as possible.

Certainly. So:

  • Give reality TV like interview including tears and wishing someone else would take over

  • Stock drops

  • Everybody happy because they still got 420
