Zimmerman Lawyer: Trayvon Had Recipe For "Poor Man's Ecstasy" (w/video)[Purple drank]
RealClearPolitics ^ | July 23, 2013 | Ian Schwartz

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

"If you do a Google Search for 'Purple Lean' or 'lean drink' or 'lean drank' it is sort of an urban kind of drug. It's known in some circles as poor man's ecstasy or something like that," George Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax.

"The main ingredients are watermelon, Arizona watermelon juice, a hard candy … for sweetness, and then some type of either codeine tablets if you can get them or Coricidin D, Robitussin DM," he explained....

Another young druggie lost control and lost his life. It is sad that his mother was not doing her job.

Good for O’Mara. Truth needs to come out since Martin has been sainted while the living Zimmerman and anyone associated with him have a bullseye on their backs. George profiled correctly - a druggie wandering around houses looking to support his next high.

I always wondered why no warrant was issued for the g/f apt. of Tracy Martin to see if they had the cough syrup and why no mntion of this street drug was mentioned in a motive for the skilltes an Arizona Watermelon Ice tea can.

Is that “Ecstasy” stuff supposed to make one happy or violent?

The name of the drug sounds quite ... errr... ecstatic.

Ecstasy can make you wild. More importantly to this case, being anxious for your next swig of lean while searching for the final ingredient can make one really wild.

this was talked about a year ago...infact, everything was talked about a yr ago but the SCM refused to change their little boy Martin script....it didn’t mean he had to be shot, but the fact that Martin was a probable burglar, a druggie, a street fighter and had been suspended from school and that his own mother refused to have him live at her house is a bit telling, isn’t it....

Never did ecstasy, but I heard it’s used at clubs when one looks to get laid to put it bluntly.

Is MOM thinking he is releasing new info that no one knew?

Its been understood from Day One that Traygone had the basic ingredients for Drank.

I’m guessing he is announcing this just to get a reaction from Crump, Sharpton, and other racists who would lead us to believe this was only “candy and soda water”.

I hope so. I love watching liberal heads exploding.

That video interview with O’Mara pretty well makes this a closed case. O’Mara says all this other stuff would come out in a civil suit, and he says that there’s no way a federal charge on racism would fly because the more you check Zimmerman’s record the more it is proven that he’s the opposite of a racist, that he’s a provable non-racist.

The best part for me was O’Mara addressing the oft-repeated statement “Zimmerman was told not to get out of the truck.”

O’Mara appears to actually have a low-key personality. He doesn’t rant, but just very clearly lays out the case that this has become a myth. He says that listening to the tape also shows the opposite, that the dispatcher 2 times asks Zimmerman something like “what’s he doing now.” Then he says the dispatcher listens as Zimmerman gets out of the truck and walks for approximately 9 seconds as Zimmerman looks before he says “are you following him?” Zim says he is. Dispatcher says, “We don’t need you to do that.”

Amazing interview. O’Mara also suggests this is over, that all of this alternate evidence would come out about Martin, and that costs would be borne by the loser.

Update #26 Part 2 – Trayvon Martin Shooting – A year of drug use culminates in predictable violence…

At this point you’re probably thinking – as I did at first – “how bad can this stuff be if it’s available over the counter!” However, as we’ll see, it’s actually startlingly dangerous stuff!

Erowid begins to hint at DXM’s seriousness in their “DXM Basics” discussion:

“…High doses … are sometimes compared to the effects of other dissociatives such as PCP or ketamine…”

This stuff is compared to PCP ? This is no exaggeration! DXM in higher doses is actually a very volatile and dangerous drug, and they are quite right when they compare DXM to PCP and Ketamine!

In fact, the drug has come to be known in some circles as “Poor-Man’s PCP!”

Physiology of DXM / Lean Use

We know from Trayvon’s own words that he’s experienced “lean” – and since he knows what DXM is – but thinks the promethazine/codeine cocktail is “a higher dose” then he’s also experienced DXM, at least at a “lower plateau.”

In answer to the question “What’s the DXM Trip Like” the author says:

“Well, that depends on how much you take. There are four different kinds of experiences, based on the dosage; these are called plateaus.

The first plateau is a mild stimulant effect with a little bit of a buzz, and has been compared to MDA [a more psychedelic cousin of MDMA -aka-"Ecstasy"].

The second plateau is more intoxicating and has been compared to being drunk and stoned at the same time.

The third plateau is dissociative, like a lower dose of ketamine.

The fourth plateau is fully dissociative like a higher dose of ketamine.

You should not [emphasis original!] attempt higher plateau doses unless you have someone with you who can take care of you in case you get sick or freak out. It happens on DXM.

Many things can happen unexpectedly on upper plateaus, such as spontaneous memory recall, complex delusions, hallucinations, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, and perceived contact with spiritual or alien entities. You need to be pretty stable and grounded before you can handle these things“.

There are a lot of myths that are still being perpetuated by the MSM &/or race hustlers. (As you've pointed out, Zimmerman was already out of his vehicle when the dispatcher said, "We don't need you to do that".)

I've generally avoided getting into any discussions, either in-person or online, with anyone that holds any of the myths as fact. As the saying goes, "you can't fix stupid".

But, yesterday someone was claiming that despite Zimmerman pulling that family out from under a flipped truck, he was still a bad man because he was stalking Trayvon. I sarcastically remarked that stalkers always call the police to notify them when they are in the act of stalking!

No idea why they call it "Poor Man's Ecstasy." MDMA (Ecstasy) is a psychedelic with stimulant and mild hallucinogenic properties. Codeine and dextromethorphan are weak opioids. </that_just_bugs_me>

...stalkers always call the police to notify them when they are in the act of stalking!

Especially when you plan on shooting them. You particularly want to time it so that the police are just pulling up when you gun down your victim. George tried but Trayvon messed things up by starting a fist fight. George had to shoot him a couple of minutes too early so he didn't get the popo dash-cam video of it he was hoping for.
