Putting aside you can't get arrested in Oregon for smoking pot in Oregon unless you are smoking pot when you drive your car into the side of a cop car and then give the cop attitude.
Dope smoking is illegal in most states.
BTW Traygone was smoking dope that night and guess what????
Zimmerman was not.
You lose!

While in his vehicle on a private errand, Zimmerman saw Martin walking inside the community, where Martin and his father were visiting his father's fiancée. Zimmerman called the Sanford Police Department to report Martin's behavior as suspicious. Shortly afterwards, Zimmerman left his vehicle and there was an altercation, which ended with Zimmerman fatally shooting Martin once in the chest at close range.[6][7][8][9][10]sounds like zimmernut was acting suspicious.

Zimmerman told them that Martin had attacked him and that he had shot Martin in self-defense.[2] Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and two vertical lacerations on the back of his head. if true it only proves he picke on more than he could handle. Zimmernut should have been the one to die, he was the instigator or who appointed him a slimy god? A statement was videotaped, and he was then released without being charged. Police said that they had not found evidence to contradict his assertion of self-defense.[12][14][15]Excep t stay put and they would check Martin out.

Traces of THC, dummy, not traces of marijuana, and THC stays in the system for a week after it is ingested and longer if you look at the hair.

So what, dipstick?

Do let us know when you find a state that allows citizens to kill others because they suspect that they are smoking pot.

Putting aside that more than 40 percent of Americans have used pot.

If you are high on marijuana, assault someone, who might have a gun, you may well be looking at the death sentence.

Martin was 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighed 158 pounds at the time of his death.[31]

Zimmerman's height is shown as 5'8" and his weight as 185 pounds on his Seminole County Sheriff's Office Inmate Booking Information dated 4/11/2012.[40] Zimmerman's height is shown as 5'7" and his weight at 200 pounds on the Sanford Police Department Offense Report for 2/26/2012.[41]

Bill Lee was chief of the Sanford Police Department at the time of Trayvon Martin's shooting[48] and had held the position since April 2011.[48] The department had previously been accused of protecting relatives of police officers involved in violent incidents with blacks, and the Martin case increased distrust between the police and Sanford's black community. Three weeks prior to the shooting, on February 2, 2012, Zimmerman called police to report a young man peering into the windows of an empty Twin Lakes home. Zimmerman was told a police car was on the way, and he followed protocol, awaiting their arrival. By the time police arrived, the suspect had fled. On February 6, 2012, workers witnessed two young black men lingering in the yard of a Twin Lakes resident around the same time her home was burglarized. A new laptop and some gold jewelry were stolen. The next day police discovered the stolen laptop in the backpack of a young black man, which led to his arrest. Zimmerman identified this young man as the same person he had spotted peering into windows on February 2.[46]

Zimmerman had been licensed to carry a firearm since November 2009. In response to Zimmerman's multiple reports regarding a loose pit bull in the Twin Lakes neighborhood, a Seminole County Animal Services officer advised Zimmerman to "get a gun" rather than rely on pepper spray to fend off the pit bull, which on one occasion had cornered his wife.[46] Although neighborhood watch volunteers are not encouraged to carry weapons, Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee acknowledged that Zimmerman had a constitutional right to carry his firearm on the night of the shooting.(zimmernut a paid shill for ALEC/NRA) Martin had walked to a convenience store near the Twin Lakes development. On his return,[86][87] he was observed by Zimmerman,[88] who was driving through the neighborhood on a personal errand.[89] At the end of their interaction, Martin was shot 70 yards (64 m) from the rear door of the townhouse of his father's fiancee.[90][Note 2]

At approximately 7:09 PM, February 26, 2012, Zimmerman called the Sanford police non-emergency number to report what he considered a suspicious person in the Twin Lakes community.[92] Zimmerman stated, "We've had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there's a real suspicious guy." [46] He described an unknown male "just walking around looking about" in the rain and said, "This guy looks like he is up to no good or he is on drugs or something." [93] Zimmerman reported that the person had his hand in his waistband and was walking around looking at homes.[94] On the recording, Zimmerman is heard saying, "these assholes, they always get away."[95][96]

The NRA ass-holes are getting very paranoid these days. About two minutes into the call, Zimmerman said, "he's running." The sound of a car door chime is heard, indicating Zimmerman left his vehicle, after which Zimmerman lost sight of the person he was observing.[33] The dispatcher asked Zimmerman if he was following the person. When Zimmerman answered, "yeah," the dispatcher said, "We don't need you to do that." Zimmerman responded, "Okay." Zimmerman asked that police call him upon their arrival so he could provide his location.[33] Zimmerman ended the call at 7:15 p.m.[33]

Since when does someone running deserve to be shot? Martin should have spilt the scum-bags skull in half.

You have a link for that 40% crap. Don't include obama we all know he smokes dope, he told us so.
Now let's look at your lying post.
Who exactly was killed for smoking marijuana? Who?
Now to the truth, in Florida you can defend yourself with deadly force if you are assaulted. SYG.
With this case it was Zimmerman who shot the gangsta wanna be tatooed up hoody wearing thug with the gold grill work who was smoking marijuana. It was that or let traygone kill him. What is a fella supposed to do?

<quoted text>Do you think giving a vicious dog a sedative would keep him from attacking and killing someone? Not even close. Some drugs have the opposite effects on people so you can't make any claims about how they, affected TM's response. Not sure why TM attacked Zimmerman who had a right walk in his own neighborhood. He had every right to walk towards the back gates to meet police. It wasn't like three in the morning.....it was early evening. People go on evening walks so for some kid who doesn't even live in the neighborhood think he had to 'stand his ground' against a person walking in their neighborhood sounds rather fishy. TM had no right or reason to attack GZ unless he thought he was getting caught doing something he shouldn't. If the parents supervised him, he'd be alive today. If he didn't break rules and get suspended, he would be alive today. These were choices made by TM and his family. They need to take responsibility for their poor parenting.
Zimmerman is a proven liar and so is his wife. He was instructed to not follow Martin. End of story. Zimmerman has no respect for the law he has expressed this several times now and this bullshit turning himself in is just a show on his part. He is a cold blooded killer.

Zimmerman killed a marijuana smoking, gold toothed, tatooed, foul mouthed gangsta wanna be that assaulted him.
Yes indeed you are right ----for once.
Oh and you LIARS who said traygone hadn't been smoking marijuana:
Trayvon Martin had marijuana in his system at time of death
Trayvon Martin had traces of marijuana in his system when he was killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, according to case documents released on Thursday.

"The medical examiner's report was among hundreds of pages released in connection with the February 26 shooting that triggered civil rights protests as well as a debate over guns, self-defence laws and race relations in the US.

The report showed traces of THC - an ingredient found in marijuana - in Martin's blood plus a positive test for cannabis in his urine."

Now the medical examiner is lying too???? No He didn't.

Traygone should not have been smoking marijuana. Now you are saying he was smoking marijuana at least a week before he was shot and killed. Like in his school????

“JUSTICE DENIED, AGAIN!!!”
