'Mad Men' Season 6: Smells Like Reefer

Monday, Apr 8, 2013

It's 1968 now on Mad Men, and the show is totally embracing the emerging pot culture. In the Season 6 opener, Megan (Jessica Pare) brings a couple of joints to Hawaii, where she and Don (Jon Hamm) are vacationing. "I know you've tried it but you haven't had sex high." Megan says. "It makes it so much more intense." Dressed in just a bra and panties, she lights a joint, then passes it to Don, who inhales. The rest of the scene is left to the viewer's imagination.

At Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, he catches Stan (Jay R. Ferguson) hitting a joint in the writers room. "I smell creativity!" Don jokes as Stan scurries to put it out. When Joan (Christina Hendricks) gets a whiff of the sweet odor pervading the office, she sniffs, "I don't know if it's the photographers or the writers, but it really smells like reefer in here."

Betty (January Jones) takes an interest in her daughter's friend, who runs away to an East Village squat. Sandy's not there, but Betty gets an earful from the hippies. Bourgeois and uptight, she declines a joint when it's offered her.
