"I don't think you'd necessarily want to be me", he said.
Overall, Morton appears to have parted ways with Tesla amicably, stating that he still believes in the company's overall mission, as well as its future prospects.
Tesla shares fell more than 6 percent on Friday, after top executives resigned and CEO Elon Musk appeared to smoke pot in a video. At one point, Musk took a brief pull on a blunt Rogan said contained cannabis and tobacco. On AI, Musk said he would be announcing in a few months a "neurolink" that connects humans with machines. Guardado alleged that Musk and Tesla use a "vague" druge use policy to target and punish employees who are seen as a "threat".
Some observers have said Tesla could be helped with a strong number-two executive, but Friday's departures create additional gaps in Tesla's ranks.
Morton joined the company one day before Musk tweeted that he was considering taking the company private with "funding secured".
Musk asks, "Is that a joint?"
Rogan's podcast is known for being choppy and focused on a wide array of topics, but Musk's appearance was particularly wild, as the two went from discussing ancient weaponry to talking about the CEO's new electric plane design.
Morton - who did not respond to a request for comment - joined Tesla last month from Seagate Technology where he served as a VP for two decades and CFO for nearly three years.
Tesla's stock and bond prices dropped on Wednesday - linked to the row over Musk's comments about Mr Unsworth but also following an unveiling by Mercedes that presents a challenge to the electric vehicle maker. While Musk was in California where recreational use of marijuana is legal, his antics certainly did not sit well with investors.
"I'm getting text messages from friends saying, 'What the hell are you doing smoking weed?'" Musk added after smoking.
Last month's "go private" plan caused Tesla's shares to spike upward, but when the idea fizzled, the stock took a beating.
Musk explained that he's "not a regular smoker of weed" because he "doesn't find it's very good for productivity".
It wasn't the first time Musk's tweeting put him into some potential legal trouble: Vernon Unsworth, the British diver who assisted in the Thai cave rescue this summer, filed a lawsuit against the executive for calling him a "pedo" online.
