(NECN) – In Colorado, a new law legalizing *recreational* marijuana use is creating a whole new industry --- pot clubs.. With munchie bars.

One such spot celebrated its grand opening this week.

"Club 64" is named after the constitutional amendment -- Amendment 64, which legalized non-medical marijuana.

To join, members pay a $30 fee and agree to bring their own pot, since the drug can not be sold inside the club.

"Club 64 means freedom for Coloradans, freedom for people who voted for the legalization of cannabis,” said Robert Corry. “This is a safe place where people can come together and exercise their constitutional rights together and they don't have to do it at home, they don't have to do it in public and they're gonna have a lot of fun tonight."

Club 64 and a similar club located in Southern Colorado are considered the first two legal pot dens in the state.
By the end of the first day, Club 64 had 200 members.
