Nederland pot club to open in a few weeks

NEDERLAND — Club Ned is set to be the only cannabis cafe — a private club where members can go to smoke marijuana — in Boulder County when it opens sometime in the next few weeks.

Cheryl Fanelli and her husband, David, who have lived in Nederland for 25 years, are set to open Club Ned at 154 Colorado 72 after a 14-month battle to get approval from both the state and from the town of Nederland.

“It’s awesome, it’s really awesome,” Cheryl Fanelli said. “It’s been tough, but we’ve had the overwhelming support of the town, and without that it never would have gone through. The town deserves thanks for pushing it through.”

While Amendment 64 made the purchase of recreational marijuana legal, smoking pot in public and shops is still illegal. So Fanelli said she wanted to open a place where people could gather to toke while enjoying one another’s company.
