Marijuana isn't technically legal in Georgia, but more and more counties continue to decriminalize it. Several incidents have been circulating social media where police officers in these counties simply can't do anything about possession of weed, leading some to undertake the mindset that a small amount is "basically" legal. Georgia weed laws are a bit confusing and this new marijuana-themed sandwich shop coming to West Midtown is not going to make it any easier.
Cheba Hut "Toasted" Subs have long thrived in states where marijuana is legal like California and Colorado, but now they're turning over a new leaf. They're opening several locations in places where it's not 100 percent legalized, but they'll surely be welcomed with open arms.
Even though they obviously won't sell marijuana, you can order a four-inch “nug,” an eight-inch “pinner,” and a 12-inch “blunt.” All of these terms are code for a sandwich size, and you can pick from dozens of vegetarian or meat-loaded options.
Maybe you're craving something outside of a sandwich, and that's where the "Munchies" and "Treats" portion of the menu shines. Have you ever had a "Goo Ball," with Rice Krispies, peanut butter, cocoa, and honey combined? If not, it's something you need in your life.
Sadly, there's no ice cream on the menu. However, if you need your fix, run (not walk) to the new Jeni's Ice Cream opening up.
Sugary sweets aside, expect savory goodness like garlic cheese bread, pretzel nuggets, loaded nachos, and even meatballs. Whatever your craving might be, Cheba Hut has you covered.
There is one way you can feel a buzz though. They aren't lacking in liquor with a full bar on-site, which is serving up fan favorites like a "Bloody Mary Jane," "Hot Box," and "Hash Can." The creativity behind the names and the descriptions will crack you up; their boldness is what makes them special.
According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, a building permit was filed to bring Cheba Hut to Marietta Street. Georgia Tech students can rejoice because it'll be crazy accessible to them.

Why You Need To Go: This counterculture sub-shop is both hilarious and serving up the perfect dishes for when the munchies hit.
