Skip to comments.Was Trayvon Martin high on a concoction called “Lean” the night he was killed?

Bob Owens is raising the possibility:
"I had never heard of lean before yesterday, but apparently it is a concoction made from certain prescription cough syrups and a beverage medium, often made more palatable with candy.
One of the recipes for lean calls for using Arizona Iced Tea Co. watermelon fruit juice cocktail as the beverage of choice, and Skittles candy the items found on Trayvon Martins body the night he was shot by George Zimmerman.
The Conservative Treehouse has a lengthy post about the recreational drug, its effects and side effects, and alleged screen captures of Trayvon Martins social media sites discussing his fondness for the concoction."
If the story is correct it seems Trayvons medical records and the medical examiners review of his body will be revisited, to see if he used the drug frequently and in a concentrated enough form to explain his apparent confusion at the convenience store that night, the odd behavior that spurred George Zimmerman to call Sanford police, and the aggression he displayed when he fought with Zimmerman.
I read this to my wife and youngest son and their reaction was that this is a stretch. And perhap it is. Especially if youd never heard of Lean and if you dont read the details of the post put up at The Conservative Treehouse.
If those details are true however, and frankly, theyre pretty convincing, then theres yet more evidence that Zimmerman needs to be exonerated.
Read the details yourself and tell us in the comments if you think its a stretch.
Frankly, after doing so, I can only conclude its a stretch to think it a stretch.
The can of tea he bought at the store appears to have been unopened, as best as we can tell.
Also known as ‘drank’ and ‘sizzurp’.
Unless the medical examiner’s report confirms this: A dangerous speculation.
The fact that a 17 year old with a proven history of drug use was out at 2:30 AM though—supposedly to get skittles.... definitely does, however, give one pause.
Click through to the original article.
(A) It was watermelon juice, not tea, (B) It could’ve been his second or third batch, (C) Some have speculated that he bought a “blunt” from some individuals in the 7-11 parking lot.
Watermelon juice?! Must...pull...fingers from...keyboard.
Trayvon was shot at about 7:25pm.
The one he just bought was "unopened". That does not rule out him having such a coctail earlier in the night.
After reading the article and Martin’s online postings, doesn’t seem like a huge stretch to me.
Wouldn’t the autopsy show if he’d recently consumed “lean”, or whatever you want to call it?
...so now we know he was a drugged-up thug wannabe.....who died just like a drugged-up thug.
Watch me shed tears. Pop some corn and take bets.
No, no, NO!
You're obviously missing the point!
Zimmerman won't be prosecuted for shooting Trayvon; he's being prosecuted for 400 years of oppression and slavery. It's collective guilt, original sin, if you will that he's guilty of.
While it's true that he's more black than Elizabeth Warren is Indian, his is simply a convenient narrative so, too bad for him.
I don’t see the media, White House, nutroots, racialists, prosecuters, Hollywood, academia, music industry, Democrats and others worrying about “dangerous speculation” when it comes to Mr. Zimmerman and making mountains out of every one of his molehills, have you? Is Trayvon Martin already such an icon that we can’t speculate as to what he was up to the night he was killed?
That is not how you make it...
When discussing with my family, Hmama was the only one who had NOT heard of kids drinking mixed concoctions using cough syrup, candies and sweet drinks.
Know ye not, thou infidel, that the character of martyrs and demi-gods is unimpeachable?
Extremely foul language:
What the heck?
do they get a sugar buzz out of it?
Give my 3 year old granddaughter a sugary concoction like that and she’s gonna face-climb El Cabinet and crawl across the ceiling like Spiderman.
Nothing rules out what he drank before, but I think that some people think that he was drinking it after he left the store, which probably isn’t the case, unless that can was empty when he put it in his pocket.
