Why does the media keep telling this lie?
February 26, 2012.
That was the day two strangers — Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager walking back with Skittles and an iced tea he’d picked up at 7-Eleven, and George Zimmerman, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Florida — met for the first and only time.
Trayvon Martin didn’t purchase tea, and he didn’t have tea in his possession when he died. He instead had watermelon fruit cocktail, and that is a significant detail with a difference.
When mixed with cough syrup, Skittles and this watermelon fruit cocktail formed “purple drank” which appeared to be Trayvon Martin’s favorite way to get high. Taken in high concentrations, the Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide (DHM) is compared to ketamin or PCP.
