Less than one month after Colorado enacted legislation that allowed recreational marijuana use,  two member only marijuana clubs have opened in the city. 

More than 200 people, paying a $29.99 admission celebrated the New Year in Club 64, one of the bring-your-own pot clubs.

The new law prohibits public consumption and smoke free laws stop smoking indoors but private clubs are permissible because marijuana isn’t sold and is not considered a food or drink. 

Club 64 attorney Robert Corry said, “It’s just a place for adults to exercise their constitutional rights together.”

Chloe Villano, the club owner, said the pot club would meet monthly at different locations, with the $29.99 membership fee good for only one event.
