VET’S BEWARE! DON’T END UP LIKE ME!
I went by Westside Wellness after work today and upon arrival provided them with my federally provided VA ID; they would not take it! The woman at the desk, stoned out of her mind, stroking her dog and playing with her phone, said that a military or veterans ID is not valid, meaning you need a state license to shop here; no other shop has ever done this. (For those that don’t know, a VA card has all the same info as a state ID, but provided by the federal government instead.)
It is also one of the only places where they will not give you a military discount on top of the regular discounts, something I have also never encountered. Others such as Growing Re-leaf and La Mota help and welcome veterans, not run them off. They will tell you how you saved with both discounts, here they were explicit in me knowing that I have to use one discount or the other – they were the same percentage off so it is no difference, meaning, there is no real vet discount.
Bad business model, ignorant people, and too many better dispensaries located nearby to give these people your hard-earned money. Support local business that deserve it, not just because it is local. No hard working veteran should have to experience what I did.
