According to autopsy results released Thursday, Trayvon Martin had drugs in his system when he was fatally shot by George Zimmerman earlier this year in Sanford, Florida.
Martin's blood contained THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
Toxicology tests found elements of the drug in the teenager's chest blood --- 1.5 nanograms per milliliter of one type (THC), as well as 7.3 nanograms of another type (THC-COOH).
In an interview Thursday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew Pinsky said, “The pot means, in my mind, almost nothing in this case. If you smoke pot … it can stay that way for hours or even days in heavy smokers. It means almost nothing in terms of someone being aggressive.”
He did explain that if someone is withdrawing from the drug, it is possible for that person to become slightly paranoid or irritable.
However, he noted, “I don't think it has any relevance and certainly doesn't in any way suggest that somebody should have been the object of lethal force because they have low level pot in their blood. To me, it’s outrageous.”
