SUB SHOP CHAIN IS HIGH ON BOSTON:

“Nugs,” “pinners” and “blunts” soon will be openly sold near Boston college campuses.

No, not the marijuana cigarettes — though those may be already. Cheba Hut will be marketing its herb-themed subs in the Hub under those names. Though no pot plants are harmed in the making of these sandwiches, they are totally “toasted.”

“The core to our theme is certainly cannabis-driven and counterculture-driven,” Cheba’s chief operating officer Matt Trethewey said. “We think it’s funny that a plant is legislated, and there’s laws around it.”

It is kind of funny.
