Trayvon Martin Had Drugs in System, Autopsy Found
ABC ^ | May 17, 2012 | MATT GUTMAN

Posted on 05/17/2012 2:11:52 PM PDT by ironman

Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, had the drug THC in his system the night of this death, according to new information obtained by ABC News.

The revelation came as prosecutors in the case prepared to release to the public hundreds of pages of new evidence along with videos and crime scene photos.

Martin's death sparked public outrage after police released Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, without any criminal charges for the killing.

Zimmerman, 28, is a multi-racial Hispanic man who shot the black high school junior at close range on Feb. 26, and claimed self-defense, though Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman was later charged with second-degree murder, and the killing provoked widespread debate about racial profiling.

Ill-Effects of Cannabis Use

Users can become disorientated and start to hallucinate and they may become angry, depressed or anxious after the initial feeling of well being wears off. One 17-year-old recreational user describes the down side for him as “getting the fear.” He says: “I start to panic and think everyone’s talking about me”.

“Well, that certainly left a mark...

Who photographed this photo of Zimmerman?”
****************************************************
Fox News just showed the photo and said it was made by one of the first responders with his cellphone.

“Excuse me but I call BS on that statement.”

It is true, this is one drug that you can believe almost any story. One of its most interesting effects is that you loose your orientation in water. I’ve seen a professional diver drown in knee deep water while trying to wash off the blood from the murder he just committed and a bunch of kids who were excellent swimmers drown in pools at parties. If PCP is taken along with marijuana the brain goes into overload...nasty combination.

I do belive most Freepers know what THC is, lol.

Tonight we’ll hear from Brian, Diane, Chrissy, etc. how THC is “just” pot (that is, of course, if the MSM decides to report on this story!). Just as we heard today that Zimmerman’s injuries “were not that serious”.

It's starting to sound like Trayvon might have been doing a little wanndering around on the way back home smoking a doobie, and was afraid he'd get busted if GZ called the cops on him. GZ said he ran from him and disappeared behind one of the buildings. It's possible he ditched the weed back there, then came back to confront GZ, and decided to play a little "Knock King".

This is I think as well.

Apparently, one of the officers who responded to the scene took the picture on his iPhone. He didn't submit it until March 18th, when he found out that no one else had taken photos of Zimmerman's injuries.

THC generally makes you pretty docile. Throughout pot history people have been lacing weed with other products.

Biochemistry being what it is today who knows. Maybe it came from Fukushima....Do they glow in the dark. Of course now they are in the dark most of the time.

Meth is the big enemy now and is bigger than all the other drugs put together.

“Now ABC is saying Zimmerman is “multi-racial” — I guess their attempt to misinform backfired and they have to come up with a new meme.”
*************************************************************
Yep, now that the bogus “innocent Trayvon” story is falling apart a number of different media sources are gradually “walking it back”.

Not only did this ABC article describe Zimmerman as a multi-racial Hispanic, they also used words such as “..... Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman,....” (instead of writing “..Martin’s killer...” as they did in earlier articles) and they did not use a picture of a middle-school student Trayvon but one that could be construed as more threatening.

I hope that Zimmerman comes out of this as a millionaire as the Duke lacrosse players did.

Again dear, THC affects people differently and makes one extremely paranoid and panicky. CLEARLY Trayvon was not “Chill” when you see the battered Zimmerman,

Martin was a dope dealer I’m sure because of the school finding an baggy laced with pot in his locker and also his twitter where people were asking for weed.

All of you are wrong. Marijuana can make people paranoid. I talked to a paramedic about this once. And people who are paranoid can act violently. Not everyone will experience a drug the same way; moreover, the pot kids smoke today is NOT the pot that many people in the 50’s smoked. Way more potent.

Reference was to the drug THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol is the active substance in marijuana that leads to a high when smoked or ingested, but there are concentrated forms, both licit and illicit. The illicit form is known as, get this, “T” or tea.

No mention of THC in Martin’s system.

“This may be a harder blow for the libertarians on here than the liberals. A marijuana user actually turns out to be a violent nut?”

If you make something a crime it would follow that criminals would be more likely to use it. Violent offenders are probably more likely to speed and rip tags off matresses, too. On the other side, if suddenly drinking coca cola were made illegal I bet an awful lot of gangbangers would be downin cokes.

“People who smoke a lot of pot don’t get sleepy like that; they’re used to it. My cousin’s hubby smokes it all the time. He holds down a good job and everything, it makes him energetic.”

It’s sorta the same thing with booze, which they call a “depressant.” But it turns out that among what it depresses is shyness and reserve, so that people use it more than anything else to make a good impression meeting new people.

Wife came in a few minutes ago and turned on the national news. You could hear the “pain” in Brian Williams’ voice having to report this.

BTW, there was a black caller into KLBJ in Austin last week who said Skittles is a street code for crack. Makes you wonder....

I just quickly went through that document. It looks like the witnesses did not see much; heard arguing - a strong loud voice - and then someone was yelling ‘help!’. One says Trayvon was on top of on top of George. Some of the statements were diffcult to read. I don’t see anything in these initial witness statments that justify second degree murder charges.

It looks like the meme that Zimmerman should have “stayed in his car” came from a cop who recommended he be charged with manslaughter. He or she claimed the confrontation would not have happened if Z had stayed in the car and waited for officers. Also suggested Z could have talked to Trayvon and told him he was a concerned neighbor and asked him what he was doing.

I did not see anything we do not already know.

Incorrect. THC is the active ingredient of Marijuana which makes you sleepy and on the hunt for munchies. Perhaps you are thinking of PCP or some other drug.

THC is present in many killers and violent criminals,and career criminals. THC is almost a given among the violent class of criminals in America, not meaning that they are changed by it, but that they choose it and use it.

Please read the last 100+ posts, get educated and come back and ask for forgivenesss for being such a dumnass on the subject. Good grief.

Don’t apologize. You are right on target, and most reasonable people will come around to this as well.

I have seen many, many little Trayvons and had the little thug pegged from jumpstreet.

He’s not unique. There are hundreds of thousands of lil Trayvons out there with the same chit attitude and outlook on life.

A license to smoke pot legally.

The stuff I’ve seen looks just like ordinary cigarettes except they come in a brown pill bottle(tall enough for a cigarette to fit standing up) like any other prescription of pills from a pharmacy.

If “Skittles” is code for crack, I believe “tea” is code for marajuana.

Doesn’t anyone remember the classics anymore? There is a line in the song Gee Officer Krupke, in West Side Story “My grandma pushes tea” meaning marajuana. Tea for marajuana is OLD.

Sure, having to deal with a stoner is worse, a stoner who thinks that the illegal drug that he uses and which is smuggled in to him at deadly cost is the dope only for the law abiding nice, white people, not the criminal, and the ghetto, and the low life types who make up the violent underclass of whites, blacks and Hispanics.
