False advertising from Broadmoor Wellness?

Update, July 16, 3:57 p.m.: Co-owner Sean Cleveland says that the center is not currently offering the free eighth per month to its patients, though it's something its looking into for the future.

Earlier today, we received this e-mail from a concerned — not to mention, annoyed — reader. Some less-friendly words have been edited out.

I was looking through the Releaf Summer 2010 that came with the CS Indy dated June 1 to 7. There is a full page ad from Broadmoor Wellness Center on page 10, and a listing for the same business on page 13. In both of these they list "$100 store credit if you sign us as your caregiver." There was no stipulation or expiration on this offer.

So I went in there today, July the 14th and I was told by an employee that they are not doing that but they can give me a free gram. Obviously this kid has no idea what the meaning of false advertisement is. This is an unfair business practice and I think they need to be called on this illegal activity.

So we called Broadmoor Wellness to get the scoop. Turns out the $100 credit with caregiver designation is now a free eighth of an ounce of medication.

"We stopped [giving the store credit] last week, or something like that. It was supposed to change. We changed up the specials we were doing," says one employee. "[Now] we're doing the free joint Friday, for patients. We're doing second Saturday of each month is a barbecue, like a patient appreciation day. [Also] each patient receives an eighth once a month."
