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.

I doubt there are many things that would render a person less violent than pot.

Pink Floyd, good headphones and high volume.

But, YMMV...

That’s why Martin was listening to rap music. Pot makes you do that, you know.

That’s it, he thought Zimmerman was delivering pizza and leaving without giving TREVOOON his grindage.

I’m still waiting for an explanation as to why the father had to be contacted the following morning that his son had been shot. Why wasn’t he out looking for him and why didn’t the gunshot and the police and EMS sirens bring him out of his house?

...so the way I view things is that Mr. Zimmerman saved the Florida taxpayer countless thousands of dollars for having to foot the bill to house, feed and medically care for this obvious criminal for years to come. Sorry for being so forthright, but that is how I view this whole debacle.

Folks, this report is from ABC. There’s probably more to the report... this tidbit is probably intended to soften the blow of the full report (expect that during the normal Friday afternoon news dump).

Zimmerman beaten bloody with a broken nose, brusied up face, and lacertaions on the back of his head. Just like he claimed and the one eyewitness said.

Martin with bruised knuckles and now we find, all drugged up.

Seems like it is more and more obvious that this was a case of simply self defense.

Neither individual did wrong until Trevon conforonted Zimmerman and punched him out. Both of them had the right to walk around the neighborhood any way they chose and no illegal act was committed until that point. Even then Trevon could have walked away and probably been alive and healthy though probably charged with assault...but he did not. He got on top of Zimmerman and continued to beat him, finally beating his head against the ground/walk way.

I would have shot him too...and probably earlier if I had been armed.

No murder 2...no manslaughter. An assault by an angry young black man that is consistant with his known twitter and facebook positings.

Sad for his family...tragic for what the kid might have become. But he was on the wrong road and met his fate as a result of it.

The following from another, unrelated story:

Dr. Catlin says he believes the stimulant's presence in the product is accidental. He said, "Supplements have a supply line of materials and that supply line can get contaminated."

"Meanwhile Martin's family disputes Zimmerman medical report "

Maybe his mother can scam another $40,000 in leave donations so she can hire her own lab to do the tests.

Excuse me but I call BS on that statement. THC may drive the subject to a foraging raid on the fridge, followed by a long rambling discussion of nothing much in particular, periodically punctuated by "I really love you man", which ends when the subject finally trips off to lullaby land for a nice restful nap. Rinse and repeat till the dope runs out.

Perhaps the writer was thinking of PCP, Crystal Meth, or maybe Ecstasy.

Regards,
GtG

What’s the going rate for a DA’s office settling out-of-court a open-and-shut case of malicious prosecution brought against it?

I hope Zimmerman’s lawyers add a few extra zeros on the end for good measure.

You trippin' dude. THC makes you as placid as an old hound. I doubt there are many things that would render a person less violent than pot.

Generally it tends to make you placid, some people it tends to make you paranoid and if someone has a predispostion to schizophrenia it can exacerbate it.

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".

My pothead neighbours (aeons ago) would spend all night doing bong hits, chowing down on whatever, and giggling like little girls.

They were ~20 year old “men”.

Zimmerman is probably more "black" than Jeremiah Wright. They don't want to deviate from their earlier label of "white Hispanic" so now he's "multiracial."

This is about destroying the rule of law...just like the Duke Lacrosse case and others. Politics trumps justice.

THC (marijuana) produces effects 30 minutes to an hour after exposure....and the effects usually last up to 4 hours.

The drug causes dopamine release which produces euphoria. Some users feel sleepy or depressed after using, some experience anxiety or panic.

Even low doses of THC impair concentration and coordination.

ABC seems to be the only one that commits to the case. The other news organizations have decided the case is not helpful for them, if not downright damaging their so-called reputation so they don’t bother with it.

THC’s not the drug, it’s the metabolite of cannabis. Does it surprise anybody the kid had been smoking weed?

Not one bit...he had the marijuana munchies and went out to buy some Skittles. Then the pot addled his puny brain enough to think he could beat  the crap out of an unarmed George Zimmerman. Only problem was that George Zimmerman was armed and now idiot Treyvon is dead

The EneMedia is congenitally stupid.

No kidding. I just heard on Fox radio news that Zimmerman had marijuana in his system! My first reaction was, "Oh, crap. That's not good." It never occurred to me that Fox was misreporting the names, and that it was Martin who had the marijuana in his system! Sheesh.
