Trayvon Martin's Toxicology Report Can Be Released, Says Judge

But it's only grass


Judge Debra S. Nelson ruled the jury will learn of Trayvon Martin's toxicology results showing THC in his system when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.

Nelson denied the motion filed by the state to have the toxicology reports kept from Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial because Zimmerman didn't know Martin, the THC levels were minimal and there was no evidence it affected Martin's behavior.

West said the state medical examiner's change in testimony said the THC could have "some effect" on Martin. West also said in Zimmerman's statement to the non-emergency 911 dispatcher that it appeared the person was "on drugs." West said Martin's behavior is now relevant to self-defense claim so marijuana as well.
