When Trayvon Martin was killed, it looked really bad for George Zimmerman until it was discovered that he was fighting the savage effects of a marijuana-fueled person of color. Little did Zimmerman know that the young man he was chasing was seeking weedemption for all of his terrorist pot smoking members who belong to a secret organization called ‘People In The United States Who Have Tried Marijuana.’ Luckily for Zimmerman, there’s a pill for this; and he happened to be prepared by taking it well before the altercation ensued. What miracle drug allowed Mr. Zimmerman to tangle with this young man? It was none other than big pharma endorsed ‘happy place’ drug Temazepam.

How can one mind altering pill that has potential side effects of violence be able to combat the threat of a stoned teen on a cell phone walking down the street? It’s easy when all you have to do is swallow it, wait an hour and hate black people.

But Zimmerman’s hate and Temazapam wasn’t enough. He still didn’t have the edge needed to combat rogue adolescent black pot smokers in a hooded ensemble. Luckily, big Pharma recognizes that sometimes self-appointed neighborhood watch captains need a little extra push. Adderall, a drug designed to help combat the effects of other drugs and work with the drugs it is combating, is the best option out there. It’s a good thing Mr. Zimmerman was on the Big Pharma cocktail that included this small oval wingman. Too many 28-year-old grown men who can’t beat up a kid on pot have been victimized long enough. The simple days of Twinkies and Coke are over. PCP is so last decade. Zimmerman was living in a ‘pill or be pilled’ world and the Cannabis Cartel sent out one of its finest to wreck his life. This wasn’t a simple Karate Kid versus Cobra Kai. This was a silent war that doesn’t show its ugly face until it is rooted out by the powers of synthetic brain chemical altering goodness. Now, pot smoking teens everywhere will have to think twice before marching down sidewalks leaving a trail of destruction riddled with Funions and Strawberry Quik. [News One]

    • I took it and it was helpful for the reasons I needed it to be, on basically the smallest clinical dose for an adult. This was while I was in school, though, and Adderal + an environment where all-nighters were a social norm= me having some concerns about dependency.

      Nowadays, I just drink 4-5 cups of coffee a day, to get basically the same effect. Also too, chewing gum helps somewhat with the teeth-grinding.

    • MissNancyPriss

      As a former meth-taker (5 years sober, yay), I have to respectfully disagree. If you are legitimately an add sufferer, and even thought it is technically a stimulant, Adderal has a calming effect, not a speedy one. If you are Lindsay Lohan, you are taking it as speed, to stay awake and for weight loss. If you suffer from add, the drug's effects are opposite from what you'd expect of a stimulant. It helps the brain send signals between nerve cells, restoring the balance of neurotransmitters in the parts of the brain that control the ability to focus. It literally slows you down.

  • "Don't take Temazapam if you're suffering from paranoia and your hobby requires you to carry a loaded weapon at night. "

      IF you're expering and shooting that lasts for more than four hours consult a doctor. This may be signs of a serious medical problem.

  • I mean I hate to judge people, but seriously, if you're 28 and you're so fucked up that you're taking multiple brain muddling drugs, you should take up a hobby like building model airplanes are just watch the damn TV instead of carrying guns on some sort of crimewatch. Most police departments would take your gun away if you were on these drugs.

    This is my beef with the NRA – I'm 100% in favor of people going out an buying whatever gun they feel like, but when people are crazy, criminal or on drugs they should be educating everyone to keep the fuck away from them.

    • To be fair, I'm on multiple brain-muddling drugs, and I'm just mildly austistic. The ones I eventually settled on complement nicely, and don't exacebate any problem I'd have had otherwise.

      I do kinda wonder, loudly, at that particular cocktail, though: assuming bipolar, as suggested by the Benzos, you wouldn't give someone Adderall for the same reason you would absolutely, positively, never given them SSRIs: anything that elevates your mood is basically just kindling for a manic episode's wild fire.

      • MissNancyPriss

        I know, I feel kind of badly about myself now because I take twice the number of brain-muddling drugs than GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Of course, they are doctor prescribed for my multitude of legitimate mental illnesses and even a quack knows one needs to stay away from the benzos. I bet he bought his meds off the internet.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Even the Supreme Court recognized that it is perfectly legal to restrict gun ownership or use by people with mental illness. But almost nobody tracks people's mental state well enough to actually enforce those restrictions in a meaningful, evidence based way.

  • shortsandpants

    There should be a new drug for this, like everything else. Amazingly, the non-stick spray PAM has been the central ingredient to every kiddie-brain-drug made since 1684 A.D., and the results have been SWIMMINGLY. Never mind all those pesky "teen suicides" and "statistics" being thrown to the public by non-industry "think tanks," the objective here is population control, and for that Pfaizer (sp?) and Abbott are doing a bang-up job. Don't do drugs, kiddies! Take drugs! See the difference between "doing" and "taking?" They may be similar, but they are in different parts of the dictionary! You know… like "murder" is spelled differently than "homicide." TOTALLY different.

    The story's still the same, regardless of the drugs involved — and if Zimmerman was an actual trained neighborhood watch person, he'd have known that you don't get out of your damn car and start stalking a kid around the neighborhood.

    Where are the cops and other neighborhood watch organizations coming out and saying that this is precisely why, when they see suspicious activity, they're supposed to call the cops and let them handle it?

    Zimmerman broke the law, disobeyed police orders, didn't follow proper procedures, and killed an innocent kid. Nothing about that has changed since it happened.

    • V572 Is this him?

      Fortunately he used a gun in doing all these things, so he's not hateful thug who wanted to harass a black kid to boost his own weak ego, but a heroic freedom fighter for the 2nd Amendment and its new handmaiden in anarchy, the Stand Your Ground law.

      It's always interesting to view this kind of crime through the would-this-have-happened-without-a-gun filter. Most of them never would. H

      It's also interesting to view these event through the what-if-the-perp-were-blah filter. Hoo-boy, imagine that.

    • sati_demise

      But his dad is a magistrate so he must be innocent!

    • RavenRant

      Neighborhood Watch did come out, saying Zimmerman had no association with them, he wasn't ever trained by or a member of any Neighborhood Watch group, and everything he did is counter to their training.

      And still, EVERY media outlet refers to him as a Neighborhood Watch captain.


  • Chichikovovich

    No snark: I'm with Baconz above. The central problem is with the "stand your ground" laws, which guarantee that events like Trayvon Martin's shooting will happen.

    If Zimmerman escapes punishment, we shouldn't rail at the jury or the judge or the "justice system" in the abstract, because allowing people to do what Zimmerman did and then just walk free is precisely what the law was crafted to do! And unless we keep the spotlight on this fact, there will be more killings like this one, with complete impunity.

    • edgydrifter

      Given his now-very-public history of drug and weapon use, I imagine many Floridians would feel threatened if they saw Zimmerman walking down the street towards them. Knowing this, Zimmerman will probably feel very, very threatened whenever he's out in public. Dude's going to become a travelling OK Corral–and nobody will ever be prosecuted for anything, because it's all legit.

      • miss_grundy

        As long as he's walking down a street that has "Stand Your Ground" laws in effect.

        Of course, the media should now broadcast loud and clear that he was on these drugs and then we'll see what his supporters will say. On Friday, CNN was showing pictures of his face and the back of his head, which showed bruises and scratches that had bled. It's not certain that these occurred during the incident with Martin because he didn't go to the ER to get fixed up right away. But immediately the talking heads were acting as if these bruises and superficial cuts were deadly wounds. In the meantime, some poor kid died because he was wearing a hoodie and walking around while blah with an Arizona Iced Tea bottle and small bag of Skittles, because, obviously, to a drug-addled adult, these are weapons of destruction.

    Hey, I resent that remark. I've taken prescription uppers and they've never made me want to stalk and kill black teenagers, or white teenagers, or anyone else for that matter. I've also taken, under prescription, oxycontin, hydrocodone, morphine and demerol and none of these drugs have ever made me want to stalk and kill black teenagers, or white teenagers, or anyone else for that matter. Nor have they turned me into Rush Limbaugh. However I'm still trying to figure out what it is I'm taking that makes me want to drop gun-totin, racist conservative dipshits feet-first into a log chipper. Is it caffeine? Aspirin? PBR? Single-malt scotch? Blended scotch? Kentucky Bourbon? Tabasco? Green Tabasco? Sriracha? Bacon? Or some combination of these tasty substances that has reduced my purity of essence to the point where I fantasize about feeding the kind of conservative idiot gun-nuts who back stupid "stand your ground" laws into a log chipper?

    I think that the best way for me to study this is with a federal grant. I will use my federal grant money to purchase large quantities of the substances mentioned above and increase my consumption of them to see if increased dosages cause a concomitant increase my urge to drop idiot gun-nuts into a log-chipper.

Take one THEN the other when the first one wears off, depending on your need, not both at the same time or obviously you have to kill people.

He needs about twenty years hard time to think about his place on Earth and the life he took.
