DENVER (AP) — Owners of a Colorado business seeking to be among the nation's first legal marijuana clubs have made an initial public pitch to city officials.

At a two-hour hearing on Friday, owners of the Coffee Joint painstakingly reviewed plans for a space where people can vape or use edible marijuana.

No smoking would be allowed.

Denver voters in 2016 approved a ballot measure allowing pot clubs. The city began taking applications in August but businesses had to complete an extensive application and mind strict limits on location. Business also cannot sell marijuana products.

Denver's top licensing regulator will decide whether to grant the license. It's not clear when she will decide.

City officials say they have received two formal applications but expect more from other businesses closely watching the process.
