Denver’s first private marijuana club opens on New Year’s; but is it legal?

DENVER — Some Coloradans celebrated New Year’s Eve in a whole new way Monday.

Club 64 opened it’s doors for the first time. It’s billed as the first private pot-smoking club in Denver.

With the passage of Amendment 64 adults over 21 can posses up to an ounce of marijuana, and the club’s general counsel believes the club is 100 percent legal.

“Amendment 64 says you can consume marijuana all you want, but just not in public, so this is by definition private,” said Robert Corry.

Club members pay $30 to come in. They can bring their own marijuana or share with other adults.

Owners say no marijuana will be sold there. Members say they are excited to be a part of something they see as historic.

“This is where you can come and hang out and smoke, instead of drink,” said Sadie Lane.

Denver police say they are waiting for guidance from the city attorney and district attorney to see if any action needs to be taken.

The club will likely change venues each week, and members could get a text letting them know where to meet.
