"Mad Men's" love of Baltimore is no surprise. Creator Matthew Weiner is a native and multiple members cast and crew have Baltimore roots (the series notably took a trip to our city in Season 3). And now you can add last night's hilarious LSD trip to the list of Baltimore shout-outs. Sure, it's likely a coincidence, but both Peyton List (who plays Jane Sterling) and Bess Armstrong (who played Jane's psychedelic psychologist, Catherine Orcutt) went to high school in Baltimore. List attended Roland Park Country School (though reportedly did not graduate)

Well, now we know what happens to Roger Sterling when he takes LSD: He sees visions of the 1919 Black Sox and faces the truth about his marriage to Jane. In that order. Yes, this was a very odd yet very effective "Mad Men. " And not just because of the LSD party, but because of the non-linear storytelling, the exquisitely detailed depictions of two very sad relationships (Roger and Jane, Don and Megan) and the painful-to-watch life of Peggy. First of all, how perfect was it to make Roger the first "Mad Men" character to trip on LSD?

The unanimous decision adds D.C. to the 13 states that have already circumvented national legislation in order to allow doctors to write prescriptions for the infamous herb. (Maryland does not sanction medical marijuana but allows drug defendants to cite medicinal need as a potential mitigating factor.) Although the issue of medical marijuana remains contentious, the council's decision reflects the drug's growing acceptance in the eyes of the voting population.

The panel that sets minimum standards for police recruits across the state is considering a proposal to further ease the rules on prior drug use in order to attract more applicants to short-staffed departments. Supporters of the policy change say it would widen the pool of potential recruits and allow police agencies to consider applicants who might have experimented with drugs earlier in their lives but are now clean. But some law enforcement officials contend that any loosening of the guidelines would send the wrong message about the acceptability of drug use. They say that previous drug use would hurt an officer's credibility in court and raise doubts about a recruit's judgment.
