Marijuana Smoking Clubs Open in Colorado

 by lucy

As of January 1st, two private marijuana clubs are open in Colorado.  The clubs don’t sell marijuana, but are a place for friends to gather and legally smoke.

Club 64 near downtown Denver opened at 4:20 PM on Monday and already has over 200 members.  When the club opened Monday, owners charged a $29.99 admission price.

A similar club opened in the small town of Del Norte on Monday as well.  The two Colorado clubs are believed to be some of the first legal marijuana clubs in the nation.

Amendment 64 prohibits public consumption, and smoke-free laws also appear to ban indoor smoke sessions. But Club 64 attorney Robert Corry said private pot dens are allowed under Amendment 64 because marijuana isn’t sold, nor is it food or drink.

Club 64 will meet monthly at different locations, with the $29.99 fee being charged at each event.

Corry explained that the marijuana clubs are intended for people who cannot use marijuana at home due to local ordinances or resistance from landlords.  The clubs provide a safe location for people to gather and smoke together without judgment or fear of violating Amendment 64′s regulations.

      Yeah, I thought while reading the article that it was 29.99 for a year. Then I got to the end and found that it was 29.99 for entry fee to the event. I could go to a club, eat a nice meal, or go to Disney land for a day with 30 bucks, or I could buy an 1/8th of weed. Maybe the reason that they pay is because the establishment doesn't necessarily sell weed but people there trade goods, so the 30 dollar entrance fee gets you into a open airish type market. I'm interested to know if this trend is able to keep up with itself at that price.

    30$ to smoke? , if u cant smoke at home go to a park or forrest that shit is free, then spend that 30 bucks on a crazy meal lol , Maybe 30$ for a month membership, but most if not all of the vapour lounges around here charge 5$ a visit and they provide each table with a 700$ volcano vaporizer(if your into that) , and bud isnt legal here in vancouver so i dont understand why they can justify charging that much, like there is no way the rent is that much higher in downtown denver the it is in dounwtown vancouver.

    The actual price of membership as originally advertised at 4:20 AM on December 31st was $50.00 for a YEARLY membership. If you purchased that day before the club's Grand Opening at 4:20 PM you were to have received a discounted membership price of $29.99 for the first YEAR.

    It seems that the scenario changed at about 9:00 PM after the Press Releases went out and the news media had been alerted. I own a company in Colorado very interested in these types of clubs and believe that I was the first paying member of the club. I have been assured by Rob Corry the attorney for the club that my $29.99 was indeed for a YEARLY membership.

    The club does not yet have a permanent location. There will also be all sorts of Colorado type outdoor activities and other types of cannabis friendly private gatherings hosted by the club in various locations. The people behind the Club 64 brand usually get things right. Give them a chance on this one and I think you'll be happy.

    Denver's second cannabis club will be opening at the end of the week. Stay tuned for FIAH PLEX, the world's first cannabis friendly adult video arcade. FIAH PLEX will have VIP, Medical and Private Smoking Lounges, the most modern video games in the area, sound systems, video screens, DJ's, Live Bands, Internet Broadcasting capabilities and more… Stay tuned and remember the name FIAH PLEX.

      Nice to hear this from somebody that knows first hand. It sounds much fairer for a yearly membership and to hear that it will end up being more than a room of people smoking and become a great event with all sorts of other fun stuff going on as well as smoking. Disc golf maybe?

      Have you found a permanent location for the club? If not, why and what are your obstacles?

    This is so cool. I really hope things work out the way they should. Who knows, maybe these clubs will start popping up all over (maybe even non-mmj states)

    great idea I can't wait till we get these down here in So CAL but i don't get why people are complaining about the price I mean shit most bars on Fridays charge a 10-15 dollar cover or if there's a band or entertainment at the bar there's usually a cover to get in and honestly I'd rather get blazed than drunk any day of the week and I've been saying for 5-6 years now we need places like this for smokers to gather at and socialize like in a bar setting! The people that are organizing this and making it all happen deserve to make a little bit of a profit for going through all the troubles and work of setting up the spots and the money needed to rent out the clubs too. Honestly yeah 29.99 might seem like a lot but in all reality its going towards a good cause and you get to medicate and meet new smoking buddies there's nothing wrong with that!
