The media glorifies him but America shouldn’t miss him. His death probably saved another, later.

Bet he had traces of copper in his blood stream as well. These thugs must change their evil ways.

“The autopsy on the 17-year-old showed traces of THC, which is found in marijuana, in the teenager’s blood and urine.”

Was it a white-Hispanic that smuggled the pot across the border?

I hope no one is surprised at this. After all, obama said if he had a son, he would be just like Travon...... both are junkies.

Not like THC is known to make people violent. No cocaine? I’m glad PCP has declined in popularity.

Traces? That's completely meaningless. THC is fat soluable. A person can have "traces" of THC in their system for months after ingestion.

I predict that it won’t be admitted into evidence. FWIW, it probably shouldn’t. However, any prosecutor worth their salt would dismiss the charges at this point and end this politically motivated circus.

I didn’t see any info on the actual levels. Also the article says “drugs” so it isn’t that clear.

I think the relevance is Martin didn’t want to get in more trouble while on suspension from school, and knew he coukdn’t pass a drug test. Also, pot symptoms can go from mellow to paranoid.

Bouncers in bars use a well-worn phrase: “beer muscles” (think “beer goggles” and you’ll have the right idea).

Could this support Zimmernman’s description of Trayvon’s behavior to the 911 operator to the effect Martin seemed to be on something?

One took him high and the other brought him down.

Obviously Zimmerman planted the drugs in his bloodstream after he shot him. While he was gasping for his last breath Zimmerman was feeding Martin’s lungs with hashish from a hooka he carried around for just this kind of contingency.

If the president had a son who’s blood were tested, the results would look just like Trayvon Martin’s.

Of course, the article won’t disclose this but
THC IS FOUND IN THE BLOOD ONLY FOR TWO DAYS.
See http://www.passyourdrugtest.com/timetable.htm
Therefore, he smoked pot within two days of the shooting.

And?

Pot makes you want to sit on the couch.

This kid had anger/ego issues absent any drugs.

The high from pot wears off within hours.

I can't imagine that Trayvon smoking weed had much bearing on the incident, but it sure hands the Zimmerman defense team some damaging evidence on a silver platter.

The defense team will seize on this information and argue, whether fairly or not, that the pot somehow impaired Trayvon and made him more aggressive, or something.

It's the kind of information that is likely to help generate reasonable doubt in the minds of the jurors...

The truth slowly leaks out. Now the autopsy report that was just released says he had a skinned knuckle on his left hand.

But do any of you remember this?

A Miami funeral director says Trayvon Martin’s body showed no signs of a violent brawl.

Richard Kurtz said his examination of the slain Florida teen’s corpse revealed no cuts, scratches or bruises, only a gunshot wound to the chest.

“We could see no physical signs like there had been a scuffle [or] there had been a fight,” Kurtz told CBS News.

“The hands — I didn’t see any knuckles, bruises or what have you, and that is something we would have covered up if it would have been there.”

Its obvious that the funeral director does not want his business burned down.

Why is it we are reading this from a British newsite and not an American one, hmmmm?

.
But lots of street pot is pumped with PCP or similar drugs, and the addle-brained ‘high’ can last more like 24 hours.

And this helps GZ’s case because he mentioned on the recorded phone to the dispatcher that he thinks the guy he’s watching is high on something. This takes down the idea GZ only thought Martin was suspicious because he was a black male, but it was a certain familiar behavior (being high) that was one of the reason’s he was watching him (Martin).

They can tell a good time frame of when it was smoked. It doesn’t mention in the article what the autopsy said about the amount still in tissues, lungs etc. That’ll come out I’m sure. Just like they can tell about when alcohol or any drug was consumed when they test tissues etc.

It matters to motive too. GZ on the phone to the dispatcher mentioned the guy he was watching looked high by the way he was walking around I guess. It matters because the prosecution is trying to say GZ “profiled” Martin solely on race when in reality it was Martin’s odd ( odd according to GZ) behavior that night, along with not recognizing him as a resident that got GZ’s attention. Now that we have confirmation Martin was indeed high, GZ is looking more and more authentic with his initial concern, and less like a racist profiler, no?

Funeral directors are medical examiners and therefore their opinion is not exactly official or credible. Bet this, there are a bunch of post mortem pics of Martin documenting every injury in their report.
