'Weed' guy stabs 'Beer' guy in Times Square as Broadway shows let out
NY Daily News ^ | 6/24/13 | Thomas Tracy

There was an outbreak of reefer madness in Times Square when a panhandler holding an “I Need Money for Weed” sign stabbed a rival holding an “I Need Beer” sign in the head with a pen.

Cops quickly cuffed the alleged stabber and charges were pending as they tried to determine what got “Weed” guy’s nose out of joint. “Beer” guy’s injuries were minor.

The two choosy beggers began brawling around 10:15 p.m. at 42nd St. near 7th Ave. as dozens of Broadway shows let out, witnesses said.

Nearby, Predator and Alien paused from their ongoing war to answer questions from an NYPD detective — who likely had had his fill of characters for the night.

KEYWORDS: nyc; panhandling
Since when did panhandling become specialized? Some beg for money, some for booze, this guy for a spliff? I can sympathize with those truly begging for a JOB. In Tampa at the intersection of I275 and Busch Blvd. an old guy hangs out with a sign saying "I want a beer and that's that!" At least he's honest.

But I thought weed was a drug which tamed the savage beast, and no one on weed engaged in violent behavior? I guess his system was running low on THC at the time.

Why do that when they can live like Kings like the Marco RINObio illegals? Get unlimited money from social services - Just get a fake SS#, fake ID, get your money, rinse and repeat. Special this week: $100k for all terrorists!

Now that we have ObamaPhones, ObamaCare and ObamaCars how about some ObamaWeed and ObamaBeer? The weed vs. beer fight sounds like Occupy Wall Street is back. What are they protesting today?
