Josh DeGroat has been in the industry for almost a decade but has always had a passion for cannabis. Working back stage for a sound and lighting company, he had the opportunity of touring with rock bands and being on the road for years, where he grew a love for the plant. Mr. DeGroat then moved into sales, where he excelled and quickly moved up in retail management. However, after some life changing events, he decided life was too short to work a 9 to 5 and that’s when he started out at Blunt Brothers as a part time driver with the passion to turn it into his career. At his time with Blunt Brothers, Mr. DeGroat has established a large client base with the reputation of being reliable, with a love and knowledge of the product he is selling. After being with the company for 5 years and his dedication to his clients, Mr. DeGroat has been able to move into sales manager position which he oversees all product quality checks, price/market qualification and manages the drivers and their routes.
Tony D. was as “green” as the cannabis he was selling when he first started working with Blunt Brothers 4 years ago. Tony’s first encounter with cannabis was witnessing the pain dissipate from his younger sister. She had endured a traumatic brain surgery and as a result, her doctor prescribed medication which put her into a zombie like state. Tony’s sister was then recommended medical cannabis and because of it, he got his vibrant sister back. Tony was then inspired to become a medical marijuana advocate and bring its therapeutic qualities to all that could benefit. While attending school to be a line man, he used his little downtime to learn the art of growing, to become more knowledgeable of the product he was selling. Tony loves what he does, and it’s evident by how eager and committed he is to working with Blunt Brothers and the Cannabis community. Tony works alongside dispensary owners and managers to ensure that they are purchasing the correct strains to provide to their patients, as well as educates them on the particular benefits that strain provides and as a result, he has built a solid network in San Bernardino, Riverside and Los Angeles counties.
