Elisabeth Moss in 'Mad Men'

OVERRATED Pot as plot device: Sorry, screenwriters. We know it's a gateway drug to hijinks and hilarity when someone gets stoned on-screen (especially for the first time -- hello, Peggy Olson!), but if we can agree that marijuana is closer to the mainstream than ever, then can we agree that it's no longer edgy to write about it? We've traveled on the "Pineapple Express," we've watched "Mad Men" get happy. What's next?
