Nice way to morph purple drank/lean from cough syrup mixed with Sprite and Jolly Ranchers to cough syrup mixed with Arizona Watermelon tea and Skittles.
If the shoe don't fit, squeeze your stinky feet into them and call them perfect.
Your devious stretch is shameful, Nick.
Purple drank/lean can be made with ANY combination of carbonated beverage and crushed hard candy for the most important part is the drug be it codine laced cough syryp, alcholol laced(60 proof) Nyquil, Dr. Tichner's (80 proof) mouth wash, etc.

The simple fact of the matter is, they could not prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. That is how the jury system works in this country. With no witnesses, it is impossible to say what really happened. You cannot convict a man with no evidence. I am tired of hearing about the race card. The jury looked at what I'm sure was the little info they had available, and made the decision based on this. You cannot fault them for their decision. They had nothing to go on.

It's not about the perp's race, it's about the victim's. We now know It's still OK to shoot to kill an unarmed black guy in the American south. There STILL will be no blacks on the jury.

Funny how simply exposing a false narrative for the lie that it is is suddenly translated by you people into saying that he deserved to get shot.

NO, he deserved to get shot because he physically, and viciously, attacked someone who was rightfully armed.

the rest of this information is being put out there to counter your lie that this was some choirboy who would never and has never hurt a fly in his life. TOTAL LIE.

Blame the prosecution, they eliminated the black person selected for jury duty.

Besides, given the propensity for racism and prejudice, I dont see how the majority of black people in this country are even fit to be on any jury.

That doesn't seem like something an intelligent person would do.
The only reason the world doesn't know of Martin's drug use is because the proscuetion never turned that evidence over to the defense. There will be a law suit over that. Cell phone showed the gun picture of him holding it, text messages saying he likes to fight and says he is good at it. He also talks about drug use. So there would have been a different perception of him if that was won by defense. You have little to complain about in saying bad things about Martin.. Wondering how much of the case you watched. Zimmerman was never told not to approach him, not to get out of his car only to not following him and Zimmerman headed back to his car and was met by Martin. Sorry for his death but only wish people would stop saying things that aren't right in this case.

Please, try to catch your breath. It was a terrible tragedy, period. But you mentioned "using your brain". Martins toxicolgy report showed THC, temazepan, benzodiazepine, and alderaal in his system. I guess it was "coincidence" that he was purchasing the two main ingredients that you mix with cough syrup for a homemade booze. Here is a parenting tip, if he was buying skittles for his little brother, it is a bad idea to load them up with a lot of sugar(skittles) right before bedtime. Liver damage at 17 severe enough to show up in an autopsy, shows that there was a history of ingesting something bad for him. But I was 17 once, I also did stupid things, had I combined it with all the chemicals above, I would probably have done something as stupid. Think about this, if the tables were turned and in the course of the fight, Zimmerman was killed because he cracked his head(been known to happen), how would you feel? I will close with the opening, it was a tragedy that what usually is just a fight, escalated to this point.

My brother was white and was beaten to death by 6 black guys left in a coma for months until he lost so much weight and he got ammonia in his lungs and passed away after 3 years the fbi took over the case and found only 1 person who was invoved funny thing is that this wasmt on the news or in the paper untill they found one of the guys who was involved!!! Complete b.s if it was the other way and a black person was beaten in a white town it would be on the news ans all over the papers this is the stuff that really needs to be evaluated and how come when a black person kills another black person its ok u barley here anything so we need to remember this!!

The 911 depatcher never told Zimmerman not to follow Martin,he was asked to keep an eye on him and let them know if he did anything else. He was asked if he was following and was told there was no need to then Zimmerman said OK. Big difference. Read the transcript.

This is a very interesting part of the TRAYVON MARTIN story that is not getting a lot of press. But it was widely reported that the young lad was simply buying "Arizona Ice Tea and Skittles" from the 7-Eleven store.
Turns out that we parents are unaware that there is a drug drink made from Arizona Watermelon drink and Skittles candy and then mixed with OVER THE COUNTER cough medicine (Robitussen and similar brands) that makes a very potent drug.
Not only is there now all sorts of evidence popping up that Trayvon Martin was abusing drugs, but it also is a warning to parents all over America that simple combinations of commonly available goods can be some serious drugs in the hands of our kids.
The drug is called LEAN or PURPLE LEAN or PURPLE DRANK. It is very likely that Trayvon Martin was on his way to make some more LEAN the night he was shot, the coroner's report shows that his liver was damaged in a way that is consistent with the use of LEAN/PURPLE LEAN/PURPLE DRANK. Martin also may have bought a blunt at the convenience store, they empty the tobacco out of the cigar and fill it with marijuana, and he may have smoked it before his encounter with Zimmerman. Marijuana and Purple Lean are a popular combination with rappers and thugs.
Keep an eye on your kids and grandkids. Those seemingly innocent items such as Arizona watermelon drink and Skittles the young people are toting around or buying at the store may be a lot more dangerous to them than you think.
You should have to be over 18 years old, and you should have to show ID, to be able to buy cough syrup, to prevent our kids from making Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank. You cannot prevent the kids from buying Arizona watermelon drink and Skittles.
Please send this info to every newspaper, everyone needs to know about Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank, and the parents especially need to know. The newspaper reporters need to do some research on Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank, and they need to report it to the people. Seriously!
All of the street rats know what Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank is, and this whole time they knew that Arizona watermelon drink and Skittles are used to make Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank. Some rappers even sing songs about Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank. But none of us parents had a clue. Parents need to know this info.
The newspaper reporters need to do some research on Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank, and they need to report it to the people. Seriously, please send this info to the newspapers so that they can investigate and report. People need to know about Lean/Purple Lean/Purple Drank.

I am in full agreement with you on the facts that Trayvon Martin did not go home in the rain! He was just walking like he was whoosy and drunk-like coupled with the facts that he had some Marijuana in his system, coupled with the facts that some Jewelry and other things were found on his bed after the police checked his home, and together with the FACT that his mother had given him to the father because she couldn't handle him anymore, and with the facts that he had been kicked out of SCHOOL(S), and the FACT that the last school that had kicked TM out was for his agressive BEHAVIOR toward a Bus Driver and the Graffitti on the walls of the SCHOOL! NOW tell me that Skittles + AZ Watermelon Ice Tea hadn't made little Trayvon Martin a little money because he had on him about $47.00 coupled with the GOLD teeth, it doesn't look like he was in a hurry to get home. He looked like a hood in the picture taken right before his death from the LIQUOR STORE!

I feel very sorry that the Mother and the Father did not realize that their son was becoming a drug dealer. If you look at all of the young pictures of Trayvon when he was a youth, you might have said to yourself, why would anybody be upset with this little kid? But when you LOOK at the Young ADULT that he had become in the liquor store picture - A picture says a thousand words. Coupled with the FACT that he had $47.+ on him when he died, was that going to get him into Heaven?
Coupled with the FACT that Trayvon Martin was in no hurry to get home in the RAIN, leaves little for the imagination to surmise. The FACT that Trayvon had committed felonies against a BUS Driver, and Grafitti on SCHOOL Properties, had been left out of this case, coupled with everything left out of the case does have a real reason why Trayvon ended up like he did. IF the parents had gotten TM into a drug program,+ if the MARTIN's had been a little more judgemental toward their sons progress in the school, don't you think that for 1 minute they should have called the authorities? Wouldn't that be the thing to do with a 6'tall teenager in the home, who had gotten kicked out of school, and was showing some agression toward 'OTHER' People?
We can tell by the language that his friend told everyone on the stand that TM PROFILED George Zimmerman.
I am sorry for all of the people out there who are calling for RIOTS and Demonstrations, but I truly can see why this whole situation could have npot been solved with a little TOUGH LOVE from his Mother and Father!

I fully believe that George Zimmerman is telling the truth, and I totally believe that it was self defense. Zimmerman should not be charged.
lol...Did you even watch the trial? POT WAS FOUND IN HIS SYSTEM. ALSO THERE WAS NOTED LIVER DAMAGE. So sick of people who do not want to open their eyes and believe everything they hear without the facts.

Last i checked, it is not illegal to follow someone. He followed a suspcious person, 6 foot 2, 170 pounds, would look like a grown man to most people. He didnt have xray vision so he didnt know if this other person was armed or not. He was attacked and after fighting for his life and screaming for help for 30 seconds and no help came, he defended himself with deadly force, self defense.
He did what any of us would have done if we was being followed by someone we didn't know. Come on, if he would have just stayed in his car like he was told we would not here at this point.

I am a white female married for over 30 years and have 7 children... I think that it is a shame that you would try to trash this young man's reputation... Teenager's experiment with different things but that does not make them a thug... We do not know what drugs George Zimmerman had in his system... If Trayvon Martin had smoked a blunt as you called it then he would not have been aggressive... it is a proven fact that marijuana does not cause aggression... And to talk about making a drink, you r right I am a mother and have never heard of it, nor have I ever heard of it until now, not even on the Dr.s... they show all kinds of homemade drugs and things to watch out for that your kids can get into and never have I ever heard of this one.. Sounds like a convience to me... My take on this is George Zimmerman is the one that took the MMA classes... He is the one who got out of the car.. By the way the young man was 5'11" and weighed 158lbs... Not what you call a huge boy and he told dispatcher that the boy looked like he was in his late teens.. So , yes he did know he was a teenager.. bottom line is he should have stayed in the truck and just waited on police... If he was as soft as they testified,he would never had chased after TM... GZ knew what he was doing... He got himself into a situation that he could not handle and killed this kid... I always heard never bring a gun to a fist fight.. That is what GZ did.. And to say race wasn't an issue is crazy... He said they always get away...Were there white kids robbing the neighborhood or black kids.. They testified black kids so evidently he was referring to black kids.. In my opinion GZ chased this kid down, the kid fought back, got the best of GZ and he killed him.. Even tho I can't figure out how he got his to his gun......And to say bad things about TM's parents is nasty... Just pure nasty.. Parents do the best they can... Well I have said enough but just to end with I am very disappointed with the verdict because I believe that GZ was guilty of negligence in the killing of TM....

@ rosehips, it isn't the kind of drink and candy as much as it is the combination. The reason for the type of drink is more for the disguise and not the type. In other words, who would suspect that your going to make a drug from these ingredients. The carbonation from the drink with the mixture of high concentrate of sugar combined with the cough syrup is what gets the high or the hallucinations. So, don't confuse the type with what is actually in it.

This article is bogus, first off you dont use skittles and Arizona to make lean, second the effect lean has on people is a very slow and mellow buzz..... the most that can happen when drinking Lean is you go to sleep. there is no corolation between such a drug and events that occurred that night. REAL PEOPLE THAT ARE INFORMED KNOW THE DEAL
