Denver's first pot cafe will open to the public tonight

People who've waited for social pot consumption in Denver, rejoice: The Coffee Joint is set to open up Friday evening.

Denver's first social pot club has reportedly passed inspection and will open up Friday night for the first time.

After a February public hearing and a March inspection, The Coffee Joint's license was made available Friday afternoon. The owner told 9NEWS she intends to open up just in time for the St. Patrick's Day weekend.

The cafe, at 1130 Yuma Court, is near other pot shops, which has them excited; users can buy their marijuana and then enjoy it next door.

It's important to remember that social pot clubs do not allow actual smoking - but every other type of consumption are okay, which includes the likes of vaping and eating cannabis.
