Trayvon Martin, Burglary Tools, and PCP-style Drug Cocktails

National media ignored some of the most significant aspects of the tragic Martin-Zimmerman case, among them Martin's suspected involvement with burglary, PCP-like drug cocktails, and/or drug dealing.

Burglary Tools:
Trayvon Martin’s phone was full of text messages, pictures and videos suggestive of drugs, violence and criminal behavior. [According to the Miami Herald,] Trayvon Martin was on his third suspension from school [and t]here is evidence Trayvon Martin had burglarized homes and/or school lockers:

In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f—.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker. Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool” ...

Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana [and his] backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds. Trayvon was asked if the jewelry belonged to his family or a girlfriend. “Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” he responded, according to the report. Trayvon declined to name the friend. Trayvon was not disciplined because of the discovery, but was instead suspended for graffiti, according to the report. School police impounded the jewelry and sent photos of the items to detectives at Miami-Dade police for further investigation...

...That suspension was followed four months later by another one in February, in which Trayvon was caught with an empty plastic bag with traces of marijuana in it. A schools police report obtained by The Miami Herald specifies two items: a bag with marijuana residue and a “marijuana pipe.”

Drug Use:

There are a series of compelling articles on the web that describe Martin's alleged abuse of a powerful, home-made PCP-like drug called "Lean" (also known as "Skittles"). Its reported side-effects can include breaks with reality, extreme paranoia and fits of violence.

One of the most painstakingly documented summaries is excerpted below:

Several weeks ago, as further information and discovery came to the surface the whole framing of the original media narrative began to crumble, I stumbled over a reference to “DXM” in Trayvon’s Facebook history... As I use these Facebook discussions from Trayvon I’m going to correct the [grammar] unless it seems necessary to reference directly to the source...

unow a connect for codine” or

“do you know of a connection for codeine”?

Our first question then becomes “What exactly is “lean”"? According to Urban Dictionary, “Lean” is described as follows:

“… 6. Lean is a mixed drink originating in the Southern Rap culture. It is a mixture of Promethazine and Codeine cough syrup and a soft drink such as Sprite (usually). While other soft drinks may be used, Sprite was the original. [And now also Arizona Watermelon for Watermelon Drank/Lean]

There are some variations of Lean. For example, Promethazine and Codeine syrup is usually Purple in color. But there are other colors of syrup that work the same way. There is a golden-colored syrup (hydrocodone based) and other colors as well.

Lean slows you down. It makes you feel good. It’s meant to be sipped on, and it taste damn good. One of the best feelings you will ever experience. Euphoria with a hint of sedation. …”

Lean is also the drug mixture that killed Pimp C...

OK, so now we know Trayvon is seeking a source for a powerful cough syrup, commonly used in the ”drug culture or circle” to make an intoxicating drink called “Lean” – also known as the infamous “purple drank/Purple Lean/Lean/Sizzurp.”

Purple Lean, or Lean, is an intoxicating beverage also known by the names lean, sizzurp, and liquid codeine. It is commonly abused by southern rappers and wannabe suburban teenagers. It is a mixture of Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup and sprite, or other beverage [such as Arizona Watermelon] with a few jolly ranchers and/or skittles thrown in.

There are your “DXM” ”Watermelon Lean” Ingredients

Arizona Watermelon Juice purchased from 7-11 included in the Crime Scene Photographs and incorrectly listed/discussed as “Tea” by Benjamin Crump, the media, and even police reporting authorities.

Promethazine with codeine, consumed in such large amounts as is popular with such southern rappers as lil wayne, slim thug, and Big Moe, produces an opiate-like high that is potentiated by the Promethazine.

Promethazine by itself will not produce a high. The beverage must be sipped slowly, and not guzzled, in order to avoid unconsciousness and/or life threatening overdose.

But what does this have to do with Robitussin or “DXM”? Trayvon clarifies in his next message:

“codine is a higher dose of dxm”

…...and further believes he can obtain the same high [as smoking pot] by drinking “Lean” . But that’s not nearly as important as the fact that he’s clearly under the impression that prescription Codine is a stronger form of the drug DXM found in various versions of cough suppressant or cough medications.

So, what then exactly is “DXM“?

DXM” is an abbreviation for the cough suppressant Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide — which is the active ingredient in the cough-syrup brand Robitussin.

According to numerous websites found with a search, DXM is increasingly being abused as a recreational drug. One of the more scholarly and scientific sites found with in-depth analysis of DXM and its various uses is ““... According to Erowid’s ”DXM Home Page“:

DXM is a widely available over-the-counter cough suppressant. When taken far above its standard medical dosage, it is a strong dissociative used primarily by teens.

...Erowid begins to hint at DXM’s seriousness in their “DXM Basics” discussion:

“…High doses … are sometimes compared to the effects of other dissociatives such as PCP or ketamine…”

This stuff is compared to PCP ? This is no exaggeration! DXM in higher doses is actually a very volatile and dangerous drug, and they are quite right when they compare DXM to PCP and Ketamine!

In fact, the drug has come to be known in some circles as “Poor-Man’s PCP!

Perhaps more importantly, unlike marijuana and many other drugs of abuse, DXM does not cause sedation, and in fact can produce profound agitation hence the comparison to PCP. In the “DXM Basics – Problems” section, Erowid notes:

“…DXM causes physical and psychological effects that may be frightening or unpleasant… Psychological effects can include profound disorientation, depression, a feeling of personal disintegration, or a feeling of “unreality” and disconnection that may persist for days. Chronic use may cause depression, psychological dependency, and possibly brain damage. Large doses may be associated with psychotic breaks…”

...We know from his own words to his friends that Trayvon has used DXM as far back as June 2011... We [also] know from Trayvon’s own words that he’s experienced “lean” – and since he knows what DXM is – but thinks the promethazine/codeine cocktail is “a higher dose” then he’s also experienced DXM, at least at a “lower plateau.”

In answer to the question “What’s the DXM Trip Like” the author says:

“Well, that depends on how much you take. There are four different kinds of experiences, based on the dosage; these are called plateaus.

The first plateau is a mild stimulant effect with a little bit of a buzz, and has been compared to MDA [a more psychedelic cousin of MDMA -aka-"Ecstasy"].

The second plateau is more intoxicating and has been compared to being drunk and stoned at the same time.

The third plateau is dissociative, like a lower dose of ketamine.

The fourth plateau is fully dissociative like a higher dose of ketamine.

You should not [emphasis original!] attempt higher plateau doses unless you have someone with you who can take care of you in case you get sick or freak out. It happens on DXM.

Many things can happen unexpectedly on upper plateaus, such as spontaneous memory recall, complex delusions, hallucinations, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, and perceived contact with spiritual or alien entities. You need to be pretty stable and grounded before you can handle these things“.

...In the FAQ’s section on “Psychotic Breaks” the author notes:

“…Be very careful in trying to restrain the tripper, since she or he may perceive this as a threat, and will probably be mostly immune to pain...the tripper, like a cornered animal, could beat the living sh** out of you without thinking twice. (!!) …”

So, where does all of this lead? At this point, after reviewing all the information, it appears quite [possible] that a ... drug cocktail use specifically led to the mindset, or psychological environment, between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin on the night of February 26th.

The tone or hostility of the encounter, and Trayvon’s response to being confronted, would more easily be understood against the backdrop of the discovery for his prior drug use; and more specifically the types of drugs being used.

...Trayvon was admittedly, according to his Facebook conversations, a user of DXM and Purple Drank/Lean since at least June 2011. He was also an admitted smoker of Marijuana which was found in both his urine and blood tests. His liver indicates the beginning stages of an unusual degrading known as “mild fatty metamorphasis”, and his brain tissue appeared compromised, both conditions symptomatic of DXM use.

In addition he was suspended from school three times in the past seven months prior to the shooting for behavioral issues. He was detached from adult supervision at the time in question, in a relatively unfamiliar place, and according to his father Tracy Martin, grounded. His girlfriend describes their phone call as Trayvon being “paranoid”.

Trayvon makes a trip to the store and buys two of the specific three ingredients needed to blend a drug cocktail he was well versed in making (Lean). And appeared slightly exagerrated, tenuous, and wobbly (swaying) when you objectively review his physical movements on the video of the store during the purchase.

He was a little more than a half a mile from home (Brandy’s house), yet he left the store at 6:24 and was first noted at the clubhouse at 7:09pm. If he intended to go straight home from the store, and under normal cognitive capacity, he should have made the 1/2 mile trip in well under 30 minutes, well under.

Maybe some "journalists" like the clownish Matt Gutman of ABC News could investigate these well-documented reports, that is, if they get bored rewriting DNC press releases as "news".

Not a bad outcome for scores of Trayvon's future victims. They were spared trauma, Saint Trayvon was stopped before he got started.
I call that justice.

It is an education.And no one knows, it would just b more assumption, that T would have gone on to have "victims"~ God in his mercy and love may have spared Trayvon some worldly ways,dangers.He was the victim,he is gone.He certainly is St Trayvon with all this fuss and his short life is turning into something good by Gods hand not by the shooter.

Good observation. But TM wasn't killed because he wasn't perfect. He died in the commission of a criminal offense, to wit: beating another human being to death. Now I wonder, what is about the right to defend oneself, in every state in the union, that Blue079 doesn't understand?

Trayyyyvon was at his Dads, because he was nothing but TROUBLE for his mom. Yet here he is walking the streets with "skittles" and Tea, late at night. Did this thug every have supervision?

Did he deserve to die, No. But things happen when you are up to know good, and we don't really know what he was doing. His public profile does not show him in any good light. He was a loser.

Scores of these punk "kids" are terrorizing Atlanta neighborhoods, carjacking, robbing, shooting, drug dealing, killing, menacing everyone. They are always up to no good. If their parents that birth them, would RAISE them, we would not have so many problems. Do they deserve to die? NO. Do we deserve to have to put up with this and live in terror. I don't think so. It is them or us.

Race baiting jokers, like the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Obama and friends, are the bigger part of the problem. They should be helping these parasites of society.

He was killed at 7:17 in the evening, doesnt really seem too late to make a 7:11 run. yes the jewelry was photographed and compared to all stolen reports and didnt match. Only one person in this had an arrest record for assaulting a police officer, only one person had an order of protection issued on them, that was Zimmerman.

Yea Im just not buying the whole image of him being the harmless black straight A student who was just walking home minding his own business when all of a sudden the demented white devil with his eyes glazed over jumped out and executed him. Thats clearly not the case here, this kid was no saint. Where I live right now we have all these new bloods & crips, it reached upper NY from the city and things are changing fast, turning into a ghetto. These are young kids trying to make a reputation for themselves trying to impress older losers who impress upon them and use them to sell drugs, etc, they're not out to beat people up to prove they're the toughest or anything like back in the good old days (go visit a site called worldstarhiphop, it sums up the mentality of what Im talking about) all that is gone now and you people need to understand that fact. These kids are just out to rob and they're high or coming off of a high and they're not all there, they'll blindside you from nowhere with no confrontation, they just want to knock you out and pull out your pockets. Its a new day people, they're addicted to all kinds of new drugs and completely warped in their way of thinking, I myself have been attacked simply for walking home, they had no intention of fighting like I would expect, one kept talking trying to confuse me while his buddy kept trying to get behind me looking for that single KO blow and there I am trying to fight fair when Im already outnumbered, I got the hell out of there before I got stabbed or worse -- Im trying to tell you these kids today are completely crazy, it sucks that he got shot but he picked the wrong guy to mess with, he had a permit to carry a firearm, the law was on his side, period. Imagine what went through his head "Wait a minute, I have a permit, wtf do I even have it for if...?" Im willing to bet he probably got robbed before. In the end people need to stop pointing fingers and seeing it all in black/white because then its all some racial injustice, thats ridiculous and downright idiotic, take responsibility and stop looking to blame but instead learn from it, otherwise this kid died for no reason. He damn sure didn't die so Mars could sell more Skittles, wtf is that about anyway? Smh. They're two people who had an altercation and one ended up dead. It happens. Bottom line is If his parents had done their job this 17 year old boy would still be alive enjoying his summer vacation right now. Smh on Facebook looking for drug connects, are you serious?!? The only reason this is getting any attention at all is because its a white guy who shot him. Go into Chicago and get a dose of reality.

Everyone's forgetting that TM punched Zimmerman in the nose and was on top of him slamming his head against the concrete. Of course Zimmerman had the right to shoot him. It's not like Zimmerman just saw him and instantly shot him. Also, Zimmerman was the neighborhood's watch guard, because the police can't protect you on short notice. This had been decided by the community.
There had been a burglary a few weeks before involving two young black men, and only one was caught. Zimmerman wasn't STALKING TM, he was just doing his job especially being that TM looked suspicious, hooded and walking slow in the rain.
This whole situation is way out of whack. Rioting, burning U.S flags. Blacks kill each other EVERY DAY for NO REASON and their families are the only ones who care. This time someone had a reason, and just because that someone's white it makes it such a big deal. It's all messed up.

Unknown said...

Zimmerman is a liar! A child molester. And a thug! He stalked a young man, got his ass whooped, and then pulled out a gun because he is a weak punk. He was scared? Yet, he got out of his car and hunted Trayvon down. This was all types of wrong. Would you still support Zimmerman if he had murdered your son?

As a bouncer for many years I've seen injury's to a head. And Zimmermann was not hit on the sidewalk. They had to be self inflicted or fist. Also just because someone likes to escape reality by doing drugs make them a bad person. Isn't that what every pot head is trying to do. People need to get over this crap there's a lot of murders in the u.s. that are of diff race. This is just misdirection by the us gov. To get people's mind off of all the real issues. Like Monsanto, Obama care, IRS , and many more. This news will not affect us unless we let it.

I think Mr. Zimmerman would have to be pretty adroit to "self-inflict" those injuries to the back of his head all by himself, Mr. Bouncer. But feel free to try your hand at more misdirection; it's entertaining.

= = = = =

The best I can come up with is:

"...On October 21st 2011 a burglary took place a few blocks from Krop Senior High School where Trayvon Martin attended. The stolen property outlined in the Miami-Dade Police Report (PD111021-422483) matches the descriptive presented by SRO {School Resource Officer}Dunn in his School Police report 2011-11477."
The items in Trayvon's possession were turned over to the police as "found items" and not as possible evidence, and were transferred to the police property room and then ignored.
I can't tell from the article if the jewelry has actually been reunited with its owner.

This article has many errors.

DXM has not been proven to cause brain or liver damage in humans.

The wrong type of cough syrup than includes DXM and other medicines for fever within the bottle, aspirin, phenyl-something are the ones that cause liver damage because of those other drugs. It would be the same as overdosing on Tylenol.

DXM isn't ever tested for in drug tests. If consumed in high amounts it may come up as an opiate but further testing would prove that it was not an opiate.

Also, drugs do have different effects on people but DXM causing paranoia is not as likely as marijuana causing it. And trayvon was found to have marijuana in his system so it would be a safe assumption to make that marijuana was the cause of his paranoia/violence. DXM is almost never linked to either paranoia or violence.

You don't need a prescription for cough syrup.

DXM is not dangerous until you consume 1000 mg+. Kids or experienced users do not normally drink 80 or so gel caps or 4 bottles of syrup. Thats $25 in one sitting and is not practical financially or because of the kind of trip.

Your such a hack... fortunately for you most of your "informed" readers are too enamored with your "hard hitting" journalism to click on your linked sources. The site purporting to give the recipe for "watermelon drank" is actually just some body talking about a watermelon flavored drink at a party. Skittles are never even referenced, nor is a recipe for "lean" aside from "purple drank" which has none of the alleged "ingredients" Trayvon had that night. The media didn't cover this up. They likely saw the name Arizona and assumed it was Iced Tea (I had no idea they even made any other drinks). Prior to the conservative lie about "Watermelon Drank" spread after the shooting, there were as many websites saying that Arizona Iced Tea was an ingredient in "Lean" as Arizona Watermelon Soda... ZERO

Probably a drink concoction that is now legendary among the teen crowd that worship the memory of Trayvon. This formula will probably become known in drug circle as "the T" for Trayvon and put a lot of young black kid's lives in overdose danger. Sad to see a truant kid - on a destructive path - become a hero when there are so many great examples for black kids to look up to.

Anonymous said...

I have a few criticisms, although I overall agree with the verdict of the case:

1. Trayvon clearly didn't have a clue what he was talking about (equating DXM to codeine), but to say that this implies he has tried DXM is ripe with error. It's likely that Trayvon instead was unaware of what promethazine/codeine syrup contains, looked at a bottle of Robitussin (hey, you know, it's cough syrup after all), and proceeded to assume that DXM = whatever was in that delicious syrup he had that other night. Idiotic, I know, but probably more likely.

2. If Trayvon was on DXM in quantities that exhibit the stronger dissociative effects, people would have KNOWN it. Trust me - it's easy to spot.

Just another dumbass black troublemaker thug, who deserved what he got. Hats off to Zimmerman, there's no telling how many lives he saved when he defended himself and shot that dumbass "child"... Or rather young adult criminal! Wake up, all you idiots who still think Zimmerman shot your Saint Trayvon in cold blood, he was a drugged out loser with a backpack full of stolen jewelry. Terrific scholasic record too, getting suspended over and over for more trouble. Good riddance...
