Photo cred - N Y
After several odd-job offers were brought to our attention, we quickly realized that Montreal has no shortage of weird ways to make money that don't involve working a regular 9 to 5 job. Some of these jobs pay pretty well too, you just have to be willing to step out of your comfort zone a little. Here's a list of the 13 most unusual jobs offers we could find.
1. McGill Psycho-stimulant Study
You can imagine our excitement when we read about McGill offering to pay you to take amphetamines, but sadly it turns out they're talking about dextro-amphetamines, which is a drug used to cure ADHD and insomnia. The study will compensate you for your time and "inconveniences" which is probably referring to a bunch of terrible side effects you'll experience after taking the drug. Original Ad.
