What say you? Was he going to get more ingredients to make "lean", or does he just love Skittles?

Well, that's certainly interesting. Thanks Gipper for introducing something new (to me at least).

He was black so he was going to do drugs. Thanks OP.

I almost put up an outside source to explain what "lean" is. I wasn't sure if it was common knowledge or not.

One needn't love Skittles to indulge occasionally.

Pure speculation. The toxicology report would have shown something considering he died shortly after purchasing the drink and candy. No chance to metabolize the drugs.

Frankly, I think his behavior is more reflective of the "tough guy" image and self view he possessed. Fighting and what not.

It's called lean - also drank. When watermelon iced tea, Skittles and cough syrup are mixed (supposedly), that's whatcha' get.

To answer your question, we'll never know.

Uh, where have you been? He had pot in his system at the time, that much we know for fact.

Btw, looked it up and goes by the street name of Purple Drank.

Yeah, but doubt that pot had any impact on what occurred.

Understood but that wasn't the point captainawesome was trying to get across. He was going for the race card (and failed) in assuming because Martihn was black so that meant he took drugs.

Who really cares, I start engaging the baiters today and hit a point and said "WTF am I doing....this is a waste of time." You really have to sift through these threads and find posters of substance to engage debate with. The rest are just hacks looking to get rises out of people.

I thought that at first too, until I saw yet another sign on the news about how a black kid should avoid walking around at night with tea and skittles and I saw how Martin was being made angelic by some and Zimmerman being demonized by others.

Why because it rots your teeth? Better than red Kool Aid--it causes diabetes.


It really doesn't matter if he had a pound of coke packed up his bunghole. The events were the events.

Not my point. Just saying it would matter in that it would humanize Martin. Also would make threats of civil charges against Zimmerman unlikely.

It would. I think the non-AA public that sided with Martin may think twice if they knew that the candy and tea he was carrying were 2 of the 3 prime ingredients in some weird new street drug.

The op made a statement that he was making a drug with codine. He had none so must be because he was black.
