Take a close look at the can of 'tea' in Trayvon Martin's hand.

The video captures Trayvon at a convenient store moments before his attack on neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman.

Trayvon wasn't buying tea with his Skittles as reported by the media. Rather, he was buying a drink called Arizona Watermelon. 

Skittles and Arizona Watermelon are two ingredients commonly used to make a popular street drug called "lean" or "purple drank."

Trayvon's Facebook posts indicate he was actively seeking other ingredients to make a batch of lean, namely Promethazine with Codeine VC, Sizzurp being the active ingredient.

The Urban Dictionary provides a recipe for lean using Sprite and Jolly Rancher candy instead of Arizona Watermelon and Skittles. 



Above: Video shows Trayvon purchasing Arizona Watermelon and Skittles; popular ingredients for the drug lean, sometimes called purple drank.

Below is a copy/paste from Wikipedia that describes the danger of the drug, including notable rappers who died from its use.

Purple drank is confirmed or suspected to have caused the deaths of several prominent users. Respiratory depression is a potentially serious or fatal adverse drug reaction associated with the use of codeine, but mainly the danger lies in the much more potent and CNS-depressing phenothiazine-related antihistamine promethazine. This depression is dose-related and is the mechanism for the potentially fatal consequences of overdose: respiratory or cardiac arrest. As with most CNS depressants, mixing with alcohol greatly increases the risk of respiratory failure and other complications.

DJ Screw, who popularized the codeine-based drink, died of a codeine-promethazine-alcohol overdose on November 16, 2000, several months after the video to Three 6 Mafia's single debuted.

Big Moe, a DJ Screw protegé whose albums City of Syrup and Purple World were based on the drink and who has been described as having "rapped obsessively about the drug," died at age 33 on October 14, 2007, after suffering a heart attackone week earlier that left him in a coma. There was speculation that purple drank may have contributed to his death.

Pimp C, widely influential Port Arthur, Texas rapper and a member of rap duo UGK, was found dead on December 4, 2007, at theMondrian Hotel in West Hollywood, California. The Los Angeles County Coroner's office reported that the rapper's death was "due to promethazine/codeine effects and other unestablished factors." Ed Winter, assistant chief of the coroner's office, said the levels of the medication were elevated, but not enough to deem the death an overdose. However, Pimp C had a history of sleep apnea, a condition that causes one to stop breathing for short periods during sleep. A spokesman for the coroner's office said that the combination of sleep apnea and cough medication probably suppressed Pimp C's breathing long enough to bring on his death.
None of the above has been reported or discussed in the mainstream media.

      It's a reminder that racism is alive and well in america, and that some people think "thugs" should be shot on site.

    When one resorts to using the term "racist," the discussion ends.

  3. All these liberals who spout the tired cliche "racist" are also fond of homosexual references (GZ dick or their favorite "teabagger").

    We know who you are, liberals, we feel your hatred, and we hate you back.

  4. The only reason anyone "cares" about whats-his-name Martin is because the media tells them to.

    1. yeah dude. tha'ts why peole care.

      I've noticed that everyone at work, school, and out in public is a trayvon supporter.

      But when I come to any site claiming trayvon was a drug addict, and invented a new recipe for purple drink...I see nothing but racist comments and pure BS.

      Defaming a dead black boy and ignoring zimmerman's cousin who said he's a molester... how low will you people go.

  6. Comment zapped.

    DailyKenn deleted a comment due to unnecessary use of vulgarity.

    The comment was critical of this post stating, in effect, that TM's purchase of Arizona Watermelon and Skittles was insufficient to warrant suspicion that he was using the items to concoct the drug Purple Drank. The comment also errantly suggested the content was plagiarizer. DailyKenn goes to great pains to include sources of our information. The critic, apparently, didn't see the links to our sources. That, in turn, indicates the critic didn't actually read the post.

    DailyKenn welcomes comments that express alternative views, but expects those comments to be reasonably courteous and thoughtful.

  7. One question I've always wanted answered - Skittles & Iced Tea - was this is dinner? What exactly was his 'last meal' that his loving parents cooked for him? Probably nothing, that's why he's eating candy for dinner.

  8. Arizona Watermelon? I thought the sterotype of blacks eating watermelons or drinking its juice went out of favor years ago! Sheesh, they just can't get away from it, can't they?
