    Buy drugs, then sell them.

    Over what period of time? What are the range of "allowed" investments?

    This, but keep in mind that security requirements will drive down your margins.

    If you live in a casino state your best bet would be Blackjack.

    how are you at counting cards?

    Open a food truck and sell barely edible foodstuff you buy at Wal-Mart for big bucks to the tourists. Accept only cash so you don't have to report the income.

    I'm pretty fucking good at counting cards and this isn't true. The best he could learn in a month is a hi-lo, and the bank roll is way too low. He'd go broke on a bad streak, which will happen even on a 3:2. He won't find single deck. Anything providing a stupid high roi takes a lot of time to learn or involves a lot of risk. If all of you get adderall or vyvanse prescriptions and have part of it covered by insurance you can do it. A tube of 90 60mgs goes for about $90 with insurance. Street price at a university for a 60mg is $6-8 on a regular day and $8-20 during finals. You can sell all 90 with only a few hours, buy the scrips that your buddies have, and be done with it. Edit: if you go the casino route, you're much better off with craps if you don't have time to learn or a high bankroll. You can't beat the house's odds like blackjack, but a few bets reduce their edge significantly enough that you can get temporarily lucky. You'll lose in the long run but may make that thousand in the short run.

    Out of curiosity, what bets are these?

    A well timed value play in the penny stocks could provide this level of return, but as mentioned above requires a non-trivial amount of knowledge and luck.
