60 Minutes: Elon Musk clears the air on pot & social media wars

(CBS) - In a new 60 Minutes interview, Tesla and Space-X CEO Elon Mush is defending his sometimes controversial behavior, after spending much of the year under fire from critics and the government.

In September, Tesla and Mush each agreed to pay $20 million in a settlement with the S.E.C. for alleged securities fraud, after one of his tweets prompted an investigation.

And last month, NASA launched a separate investigation into the Space-X workplace after Mush was seen smoking marijuana on camera.

Despite all this, Tesla's stock is trading near its all-time high.

Lesley Stahl spoke with the polarizing tech titan for Sunday's 60 Minutes.
