After just one day of operation, the nation’s first “pot club” has shut down in Colorado. It was one of two companies, which allow individuals to bring in their deposit and consume it in a location which isn’t their home.
Lease worked incorrectly
To be able to say “we can do whatever we want” to the federal government, many states will pass laws that go against federal regulation. Colorado and Washington voters did just that as they decriminalized the use of cannabis for recreational purposes.
Decriminalizing, for those who don’t recognize that there is a difference, is where a thing is lawful, but controlled. Legalization is the ablution of any regulation.
In Colorado, at least two “pot clubs” were publicized. In essence, they are lounges where people can take their own weed and smoke. However, according to the Huffington Post, the owner of one pot club, the White Horse Inn, was so desperate to get the store open on short term schedule that he inadvertently violated his lease.
Too excited to begin
How pot clubs operate is that since selling marijuana is illegal in both Colorado and Washington state, people can buy a membership. If they want to fire up a joint or whatever, they can go to the pot club and consume their own supply.
Two opened recently, according to ABC, one called Club 64, in honor of Amendment 64, the Colorado law decriminalizing marijuana use, and another institution called the White Horse Inn, in Del Norte, Colo., a coffee shop-style operation with booths where patrons can indulge.
Unfortunately, the White Horse Inn opened, according to the Huffington Post, one day before its lease allowed it to, leading the building’s owner to force the shop to close and evict Paul Lovato, owner of White Horse. Lovato was overeager to get the business running and violated the lease agreement.
Not bad for other club
It is anticipated that Lovato might have been just a little distracted when looking at the contract’s terms.
The other pot club in Colorado, Club 64, has a more interesting model. It doesn’t have a permanent location, but rather rents out spaces for events. Members pay a $29.99 fee and if they are nearby whenever or wherever a Club 64 “event” is being held, they can show up, show membership and prove they are at least 21 years of age and get as baked as they want, according to CNN.
If there’s a Denny’s nearby, it’ll be rolling in dough after participants are done rolling doobies.
