DENVER —

The nation's first known recreational pot club has already closed its doors.

The Denver Post reports Tuesday that the White Horse Inn in the southern Colorado town of Del Norte (del-NORT') closed a day after its opening because of a landlord dispute ( http://bit.ly/ZS8trC).

Owner Paul Lovato tells the newspaper that he wanted to be first in the nation to open a marijuana club. He beat a marijuana club in Denver by a few hours.

Lovato says his lease on the building didn't start until Tuesday. Lovato said that when his landlord saw the publicity about the club, he canceled the lease before it took effect.

Colorado voters in November legalized use and limited possession of marijuana. The marijuana measure bans public consumption but doesn't ban members-only group smoke-outs.
