I almost always take the word of some of those I follow. I have always believed Bill Whittle.
This time I’ve double checked his statements about ‘lean’, the drug concoction made at home by rappers and now many kids.
He stated it was made with Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail, Skittles and cough syrup with codeine. There were questions in another blog about his statements. So I did some digging.
It seems that Sprite and Jolly Rancher Candy were originally used with cough syrup with codeine to make lean. But as early as 2012 Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail were commonly used to make this drug too.
There were also links to copies (purported copies since I am not on Facebook and cannot check) of Trayvon’s Facebook pages citing posts that show he was looking for codeine and he was told about the making of lean with Skittles and Arizona Fruit Juice Cocktail and cough syrup with codeine. This is another pretty valid blog:
I don’t know if he had any of this in his body. We do know he had marijuana in his blood at the time of autopsy and that he had purchased Skittles and Arizona Watermelon fruit juice cocktail which are 2/3 of the ingredients for lean.
That evidence that was never brought forward, that could have been found and reported by the news media, shows that Trayvon was at least a drug user. A drug that makes you paranoid, aggressive and sometimes dissociative or zoning out: Marijuana.
In reviewing Bill Whittle’s report on the youtube and other reports on the web, his statements are still reliable to me. He shows the possibility that young Trayvon was going to make lean and that his autopsy shows possible effects from the street drug.
