In 2018, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk smoked weed on Joe Rogan’s YouTube show.
Since SpaceX is a U.S. military contractor, the government was not happy about this incident.
According to Gizmodo, NASA decided to require SpaceX to go through an intensive safety audit and cultural review.
Politico reported that SpaceX’s review cost $5 million that is technically paid by taxpayers.
SpaceX initially paid for the review but then NASA agreed to reimbuse it.
