I'm finally catching up with the hit AMC series "Mad Men" dvd and its marijuana references.It is set in the 1960s, the first season had talk of a competing ad agency where everyone smoked and the creative product was better.
Adman Don Draper smokes pot with his Greenwich Village girlfriend Midge, whose friends give him grief about his career. In the following episode he refuses a job with a global ad agency, saying when he leaves his current job he'll do something else with his life.
An interview with actress Rosemarie DeWitt, who plays Midge, said it was suggested she read Diane DiPrima's "Memoirs of a Beatnik" in preparation for the role.
Season 3 Mad Men dvd collection has an episode with mousy-secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson announcing "I want to smoke some marijuana" then, "I'm so high." It's nice she's having some fun, after having a child out of wedlock to a jerk account executive in the last season..
Mad Men is currently on hold, but will return to AMC in 2012 for Season 5 Mad Men dvd boxset.
