In this economy...

...it's tough to make a living. Especially when you're working as a door-to-door salesman:
A 19-year-old Brownsville man is jailed on a drug charge after he allegedly went door-to-door trying to sell marijuana. A Brownsville police spokesman says Anthony Carrazco's alleged scheme went awry when he knocked on a police officer's apartment door.

Spokesman Jimmy Manrrique says the episode happened Thursday downtown near the University of Texas-Texas Southmost College campus. He says Carrazco appeared to be intoxicated and allegedly had three ounces of marijuana with him that he tried to sell door-to-door. Finally, Carrazco knocked on the off-duty police officer's door. The officer "said he would be right back and went to get his badge and handcuffs."
Well, I guess Carrazco probably would have been able to pawn the badge and handcuffs for a few bucks, but I think he was actually looking for cash upfront for the weed. I'm pretty sure that's how those transactions usually work.

Oh, wait...
