Out of work? Hard up for cash? Why not just post up in Times Square with "Help! I Need Money For Weed!" scrawled on an inexpensive piece of posterboard? Works for Josh Long! From the NYT:

Mr. Long, 30, a Navy veteran from North Carolina, began displaying his weed sign last year, roving from 14th Street to Central Park, but soon settled upon Times Square as the most fertile ground. He has estimated that he could earn about $200 during a four- or five-hour shift.

Mr. Long "said that he has quit smoking marijuana."
