Drug dealing is an optional choice when it comes to earning money in This Thing Of Ours. Drugs can initially be brought in from connections you gain throughout the course of the game. Once you have yourself some drugs you can push them to drug dealers and drug users. Each dealer/user has the probability of being a snitch, if they are in fact a snitch, the police will immediately be notified and swarm in on your position(You are of course able to escape at your own risk).
Car dealerships are scattered across the city and are great ways for you to spend some of that hard earned cash!
Businesses were a key source of legitimate income for wise guys and they will be for you too! Some businesses in the city will be made available to purchase right from the start of the game, and some will have to be taken from rival families and gangs.
