‘Get a Roof, Get Some Weed:’ Colorado roofing company offers customers $500 in marijuana

DENVER — A Colorado company has offered a free gun to new customers and to attract new employees.

Now, instead of a “Get a Roof, Get a Gun” promotion, one company is advertising “Get a Roof, Get Some Weed.”

“Denver’s #1 roofing company is offering YOU some free ‘grass’ with every roof that we install. We are taking roofing to the next level, ‘higher’ if you will,” Masterpiece Roofing & Painting stated on Facebook.

In the video posted on Facebook, Zach Blenkensopp, wearing short jean shorts, a bow tie, a cowboy hat and boots, tells Rex “the Roofer” Corley the company is offering customers $500 in “vouchers” for marijuana.

The video posted on Saturday had been viewed nearly 90,000 times in two days.

According to its website, Masterpiece Roofing has an A-plus rating with the Better Business Bureau.
