Colorado lawmakers Thursday backed off plans to become the first state to regulate marijuana clubs, saying approval of Amsterdam-style pot clubs could invite a federal crackdown, the Associated Press reported.

The AP said a Colorado measure would have club-goers bring their own pot, but it was amended to remove club regulations over fears they'd only attract federal drug enforcers.

"Given the uncertainty in Washington, this is not the time to be … trying to carve off new turf and expand markets and make dramatic statements about marijuana," Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper told the Denver Post last month.

Colorado has about 30 private pot clubs, but they operate under varied local regulations, The Hill reported.
