I went right up the street the day after my seedy experience with the owner of La Mota's greedy business habits. I've been there a few times, but La Mota is a bit closer to my house, so I got lazy. The staff is friendly and HOT, also, so that's a draw. Not enough to get so blatantly dishonest of a gram, though. It's not the gram, it's the business practices. My pimply faced dealer in high school used the add-a-seed trick to add weight, fer cryin' out loud !! I'm 55 ! I expect maturity ! Anyway...I went to Silver Stem, and couldn't help but tell the seed story to the owner. he was aware of La Mota's traler park attitude towards the pot industry, and said he'd had a similar experience while secret shopping there to check out the 'competetion'. There is no competetion. I only had $10, but he sold me a $20 eighth for that $10. Now THAT's how you keep customers coming back !! T&A will only get you so far when the customers find out how crappy the pot is. Their top shelf is Silver Stem's middle shelf, for cheaper.
All of the short, positive reviews you see here are because they give you a WeedMaps T-shirt if you leave a good review. At least I'm happy with that !
they sell great weed at La Mota. it may look like a cheap cell phone store, but the buds are kind and the staff are a bunch of friendly folks.
I like the staff. I like the atmosphere. I didn't like finding that 1/3 of the amount I bought was SEED WEIGHT !! Which of course made the weed taste like HAY !! I NEED medical pot for nerve damage. I don't have SSI yet. I'm nickle/ diming it until I do. I managed to collect $4 for a gram. The menu said gram. Didn't mention shake. She handed me a flat, ziplock bag after she rang it up, and without showing it to me. I wasn't happy they tricked me into shake, but my nerves were starting to hurt, so I took it home and shook it out. 12 SEEDS came ROLLING out !! There was no way they didn't know they were in there when they packaged it. I took it back, and asked to speak to the manager. Not there. The clerk said "No refund, no replacement". I had her call the manager. A 25% discount on my NEXT buy was all she would do for me. THEY RIPPED ME OFF and were then negotiating how little they were gonna make up for it !!! I'm 55 yrs old ! My high school pot dealer tried this old dealer's trick all the time ! I expected a more professional attitude from these people, but it's obvious it's 'buyer beware!', because they'll try to get away with every old trick in the book !
The clerk, after trying to kick me out so the other customers wouldn't hear me (one asked me for the seeds), actually bought me a $6 gram. It wasn't out of kindness. I kept the seeds, because what the owner doesn't realize is that every seed I get from them will go towards growing my own, and never going back to this rip off place again. The owner is buying discount weed to increase her profit. When I was a teenager, Mexican weed was known for it's great amount of seeds in it, and the crappy quality that results from the plant growing seeds instead of bud. La Mota is a Mexican name. Some things never change.
Super helpful, knowledgable, and helpful staff! Wide selection and price range.
