You know what Trayvon Martin craved when he was stoned? Skittles and trying to beat up Neighborhood Watch guys. As it turns out, Trayvon Martin had measurable levels of THC in his blood at the time of his death. And it also shows that being stoned mkes it hard to dodge bullets.
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.
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. The autopsy report shows traces of the drug THC, which is found in marijuana, in Martin’s blood and urine.
The autopsy also shows that Zimmerman shot Martin from a distance of between 1 inch and 18 inches away, bolstering Zimmerman’s claim that he shot Martin during a struggle that landed Zimmerman on his back, Martin straddling him and banging Zimmerman’s head on the ground.
Poor little stoned angel tried to put the boot to the wrong man. I can’t wait for the trial to begin.
