Another Perspective on Soda and Skittles

I still feel that the encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin could’ve been avoided if both men had avoided overreacting. I just found this interesting and confirms my suspicion that the prosecution insisted on calling Martin a child – in order to further hide something about his background. I had no idea about this until I stumbled across this article…. although I saw the images on Facebook yesterday but didn’t look to see what they were about…

This is an excerpt from a new article about the Norfolk VA NAACP area president — check out the excerpt and then I suggest you read the full article —


Despite the efforts of prosecutors and activists to keep a lid on the troubled criminal past of Trayvon, his involvement with drugs and such is becoming increasingly well known.

Twitter, Facebook, and toxicology tests have established Trayvon’s long and enthusiastic acquaintance with marijuana and codeine. Says Jack Cashill over at American Thinker:

Trayvon, in fact, had become a devotee of the druggy concoction known as “Lean,” also known in southern hip-hop culture as “Sizzurp” and “Purple Drank.” Lean consists of three basic ingredients – codeine, a soft drink, and candy. If his Facebook postings are to be believed, Trayvon had been using Lean since at least June 2011.

On June 27, 2011, Trayvon asks a friend online, “unow a connect for codien?” He tells the friend that “robitussin nd soda” could make “some fire a** lean.” He says, “I had it before” and that he wants “to make some more.” On the night of February 26, if there was some Robitussin at home, Trayvon had just bought some mixings for one “fire a** lean” cocktail.

Mixing codeine and fruit juice is a popular topic with rap stars, including one of the biggest of all, Li’l Wayne.

The Daily Mail over in London did a wrap up story about how Trayvon was suspended from school three times for fighting, drug abuse, and vandalism.
