Saint Skittles and Purple Drank

We know that Trayvon Martin had marijuana in his system on the night he tried to kill George Zimmerman, and had been suspended from school for using marijuana. Some believe he was a drug dealer. You might assume his famous mission to acquire Skittles candies and Arizona iced tea (actually watermelon juice, but the media is only good at narratives, not factual details) was a classic example of a pothead with the munchies. Here’s another theory:

RashManly.com accuses Martin of admitting on his Facebook account as early as June 27, 2011 of being an abuser of a codeine, soft drink and candy beverage popularly known as “Purple Drank” or “Lean.” …

Purple Drank is commonly used by Southern Rappers and “wannabe suburban teenagers” according to Urban Dictionary.

By mixing some cough syrup with the juice and Skittles, Martin could have produced some Purple Drank.

The Last Refuge backs up the theory with extensive documentation.

Purple Drank has been referred to as the “poor man’s PCP” due to its potential effect of turning users into psychotic maniacs. A habit of indulging in such drugs might explain why the media’s little darling attacked a neighborhood watch captain and attempted to dash out his brains against the pavement.

If only Saint Trayvon had pursued a local equivalent of Arizona drug detox, the entire incident might have been avoided.

    Had that figured out about 10 seconds after seeing the actual items – fruit flavors used to mask cough syrup is a trick as old as, well, cough syrup. Back in my day it was a “DX” as in dextromethorphan, but in the upper crust it was an “Abby Rockefeller” – fruit juice, jello, and cough syrup was the go to undercover drink…

    So yeah, St. Travon was either high or about to get there – all while on suspension from school.

    In a more civilized society, what happened to Trayvon would have been a cautionary tale, illustrating the dangers of the’gangsta’ life. Hopefully, word of what he was doing will get out and serve as a warning

  3. NUchemist says:

    To set the record straight, true “purple drank” or “lean” consists of Phenergan with Codeine syrup (or its generic equivalent), consisting of codeine phosphate 10 mg/promethazine hydrochloride 6.25 mg per 5 mL. The medication is mixed with a soft drink such as Sprite in a styrofoam cup. “Purple drank” does NOT refer to Robotussin, which contains dextromethorphan, an entirely different drug.

  4. Jim says:

    Martin was a drug user, thief, bully and thug. What he did and what happened to him were, and are, justified. Fitting for Obama’s “son”.

  5. Joe says:

    Who gives a damn. I think getting killed at this age did nothing but save him a lifetime in prison, and saved us the $ to keep him there.

    “A habit of indulging in such drugs might explain why the media’s little darling attacked…”

    I appreciate your integrity and desire to get all of the truth out there.

    It can be more simple than that, though. trayvon was colored. That’s really all anyone needs to know as far as the why part.

    coloreds, all coloreds, are violent opportunists. An adult buck like trayvon, by the time it reaches “maturity,” will have lived for many, many years as a favored minority that is immune from judgement. coloreds aren’t held to standards. trayvon did what he did because he was black.

    Even coloreds that abuse marijuana, even the males that abuse it so much that they have susbstantial breast development, even they are violent. You’d think weed would mellow them out. It doesn’t. Violence is colored nature.

  9. Xavier says:

    Eventually, the truth will come out about St. Skittles. The family problems, the school problems, the police problems, the drug problems, the break in problems, the stolen property problems…

    I’m convinced Rachel Jeantel instigated the attack, and that’s why the final phone conversation has been suppressed. Martin was an up and coming thug, and Zimmerman probably saved somebody’s life besides his own.

    But to the libtards he’ll always be an innocent child walking home from 7-11 with candy and iced tea. Laws and facts are just inconveniences that get in the way of their agenda.

    Vic’s a dick, and a troll. His goal is to paint MB as a racist blog and bring the internet vigilantes in to start a boycott of the advertisers here. Ban him and delete that comment please.

    Easy Dave. Now you’ve given the family someone else to sue.

    And….didn’t BabyTray’s autopsy indicate liver damage? and what happens from regular use of ‘lean ‘????

    Another thought to ponder. TrayTray was shipped out of his regular drug-ingesting hood and may have had to get his ‘stuff’ and was going through a mini withdrawal from his regular amount. Make him jittering? Make him nervous about someone seeing him ‘do’ anything as he was suppose to be cleaning out? George assessed suspicious behavior. Simple. Even said acting like maybe on drugs. This would have validated George’s word on what happened but was not allowed in trial and/or was not brought up.

    a black kid buying a watermelon drink? now that’s just racist…….

  16. Jodie says:

    In my day, we would have been happy just to have the codeine by itself. We didn’t need all that other stuff.(kidding)

[…] Here’s my suggestion for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture: Title the new exhibit “Keeping the FalseHood Alive.” And right next to the sweatshirt, include a small display with package of Skittles, a can of Arizona Watermelon fruit juice cocktail, and a recipe for a batch of homemade “poor man’s PCP.” […]
