Posted on 07/14/2013 1:18:44 PM PDT by blueyon
Media speculation as well as internet buzz are openly querying if Trayvon Martin's purchase of Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Fruit Cocktail Juice on the night he died were just to satisfy a young man's sweet tooth or were they two of the three ingredients in a dangerous codeine-based concoction, as reported by the pop culture news portal RashManly.com on July 12, 2013.
Martin has been portrayed by his supporters as an innocent youth armed with nothing more than a bag of Skittles candy and a can of Arizona Iced Tea on the night he was killed by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman..
During the course of the trial, State Prosecutor John Guy made it official when he identified to the jury Martin's personal possessions found on his body by police, to include an "unopened bag of Skittles" as well as a "full can of watermelon-flavored drink," as reported by Central Florida News 13 on June 25, 2013.

There were threads on this quite a while ago..
maybe last year...
the items itentified Martin as a druggie of sorts...
then the MJ use came out later...
but some of us got quite an education from the threads...
I read this elsewhere,
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. 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.
Keep an eye on your kids and grandkids. Those seemingly innocent items they are toting around or buying at the store may be a lot more dangerous to them that you think.
Martin even texted about it.
Also an army friend of mine said this:
“It’s true because I had friends in the army that would take those flavored cigars and soak them in cough syrup”
But any all-sugar candy and any corn-syrup laden softdrink will do.
You can add vodka to it as well.
Here's the truth:
Yes it’s true. He had just purchased two of the three ingedients that he openly talked about creating on his FB page
Everything I’ve read says the preferred mixer is Sprite or some other lemon-lime soda, not iced tea. Other than being aware of the recreational use of codeine, what’s the point of this speculation now?
What kind of high does this give them? No coughing and moving fast?
Trayvon himself, who lost his temper and attacked GZ with fatal consequences, was far less wicked, I believe, than the crowd that piled on in his name.
Old news. “Purple drank” is also known as “lean”.
It was throughly covered here about a year ago.
Trayvon Martin mentioned the concotion a couple of times in his texts and/or social media.
I have found it interesting when certain “urban youths” cannot properly pronounce “ask” or identify NaCl, but sure as hell can fully comprehend what promethazine is.
Why not? It would help explain what Martin was doing. Was he slinking throutgh the neighborhood looking for open bathroom windows where there he might a medicine cabinet stocked with cough syrup? That would be pretty suspicious.
Why not just drink cough syrup?
Forwarding the link of the original article to as many MSM sources you know might go a long way in turning the minds of people around about this “child”
Arizona Iced Tea. From New York City.....!
There are several variants of purple drank, and this is one, nicknamed ‘Lean’. Purple drank, and variants, are thought of as popular among southern US rap artists and fans, and several rap artists have died after drinking it.
Importantly, the prescription cough syrup used contains both codeine and promethazine. The latter ingredient is called a “first generation antihistamine”. The drug has strong sedative and weak antipsychotic effects. It also reduces motion sickness and has antiemetic and anticholinergic properties. In some countries it is prescribed for insomnia when benzodiazepines are contraindicated.
Promethazine has been reported to cause significant sedation, agitation, hallucinations, seizures, dystonic reactions, and possibly apparent life-threatening events.
