We had the good fortune of connecting with Tucky Blunt and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tucky, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
Being open and honest with them. Also being willing to listen and direct with instruction. Not just do as I say
What should our readers know about your business?
I am the CEO and Owner of blunts and moore dispensary in Oakland CA. I am the 1st ex felon for cannabis sales to fully own a dispensary under Oakland social equity program. I got where I am at by walking a path laid out for me by our heavenly father, Yahweh. Nothing is ever easy, but the challenges I’ve had, don’t even compare to the successes. Over my 25 years of cannabis sales, I’ve learned and continue to learn. Most recently, I’ve learned that paperwork is important. What needs to be known about my story, is that I’m as real as they come, and I want to open more stores with other real people. I am the face of the space!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
So with covid still being around alot of locations I could attend aren’t open. But for food I got that covered. Chef smelly, family house of fish and poultry, djs tri tip, smokin woods, world famous hot boys, Philly best Oakland, IBs. I’d bring them by Blunts and moore, downtown Oakland, and we could hang out on 80th where I grew up.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shout out my wife Kimberlee. She has been with me 16 years and is my ear, consultant, friend, and mate. Without her I wouldn’t be here
