NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine announced on Thursday that Elon Musk, who smokes weeds, lives on the Internet "did not create confidence," writes The Atlantic.
SpaceX Musk is subject to NASA security review after it put cannabis on live podcast "Joe Rogan Experience" in September.
Now Bridenstine publicly commented on the incident for the first time. He said at a meeting of reporters: "I will tell you that this was not useful and it did not inspire confidence, and the leaders of these organizations must take it as an example of what to do when you are the leadership of an organization that is about to launch US astronauts."
Bridenstine said it had personally ordered a security review of SpaceX and Boeing, which first revealed The Washington Post. But he emphasized that he wished to look at their corporate culture before Musk smoked the grass.
His decision was influenced by the tragedies in NASA's history, including the Apollo 1 fire in 1967, which killed three astronauts and two space shuttle disasters during the earth test in 1986 and 2003.

Bridenstine said that the question that always arises is whether NASA culture has contributed to these accidents. "What was the culture of our suppliers and there were people who lifted the red flag we did not hear, and eventually this culture contributed to failure and in those cases to disaster?" he said.
Atlantik Marina Koren has asked Bridenstine to know whether the smoke of smoke that smokes grass online is made up of a red flag. "I did not think it was useful," he replied.
Bridenstine also said she had "several conversations" with Musk about her behavior. "I'll tell you he's as safe as anyone, and he understands that this is not a good behavior and you will not see it again," he continued.
Business Insider contacted SpaceX and NASA to comment.
