How did you celebrate on New Year’s Eve? With dinner, champagne, and a midnight kiss? Some in Denver decided to add a new meaning to the phrase “Mile High Club” instead. Here’s KCNC.

“The nation’s first legal marijuana club. It is aptly named club 64 and in the wake of amendment 64. Denver police say that they won’t try and shut it down."

Here’s how it works: people pay $30 to become a member, and they get sent an e-mail or text message telling them where and when the club will meet. No pot will be sold at the club, and members have to bring their own or share with others. (Via WTXF)

“The club’s owners say it’s 100% legal, especially since Colorado now allows adults who are 21 and over to have up to an ounce of marijuana as long as it’s not in public.” (Via WGN)

But before people start thinking of another meaning for “Denver Nuggets,” there’s one key question: just how legal does the government say club 64 is?

A writer for the Denver Post spoke with a member of the state’s Task Force on the Implementation of Amendment 64, who said “Nothing in the amendment language permits consuming [marijuana] openly and publicly.” But the writer adds residents “can smoke or ingest pot at home and, as [club 64’s owners] are assuming, also in marijuana-friendly businesses or private settings.”

But one CNN correspondent says the grass might not be so green if Uncle Sam decides to get involved.

“It’s still against federal law Joe and until they really work that out between the state and the federal government, it’s hard to really know if establishments like club 64 … will really be able to move forward.”
