A Denver attorney recommended on Wednesday that the city approve the proposal following a public hearing last Friday. The city of Denver’s top licensing regulator has the final say on issuing the permit. It’s not clear when that might happen.

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 adhere to strict limits on location.

The clubs also cannot sell marijuana products.

Denver has received two applications but officials expect more.
