Public toking is still illegal in Colorado (which legalized the sale of recreational marijuana on January 1st), but there’s nothing stopping you from recreating these weed-sushi pairings at home, now is there?

For when a regular taco run just won’t cut it, Colorado sushi mini-chain Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar recently rolled out a mock marijuana – sushi pairing menu, suggesting which strains might pair best with a plate of Pakaloko Shrimp, honey miso salmon, or katsu curry (Pakistani Kush, Sour OG, and Blue Dream, in case you were wondering).

No weed is actually available in-store, but Jonathan Schoenberg, executive creative director of the agency who designed the menu, insists, “Some thought was put into them.”

The mini-chain has also introduced a series of tongue-in-cheek ads and table placards, like the one pictured below, demonstrating the kinds of enlightened conversations it hopes will take place in its stoner-friendly restaurants:
