“Tea” – a much older term for marijuana, made popular dating back from the 1930′s. today it is considered obsolete and a great way to cover up what you’re REALLY talking about.
………….”man, if i had some tea, i’d be in herbal heaven.”
“Skittles” – also known as beans, ecstasy, rolls, E, X, Adam, Stacy, Clarity
…………. “Hey dawg how much for 30 skittles”?
“Skittles” – With Skittle bag, sometimes used to refer to miscellaneous heterogeneous mix of various narcotic pills, jumbled up in a bag (usually leftovers donated to the communal skittle bag). Often multicolored like a bag of skittles. Incredibly dangerous, as the actual contents are often unknown, and, thusly, the effects are often a surprise high.
…………….. “Yo, break open the bag o’ skittles and let’s do some lines”.
“Skittles” – Skittles aka dxm, and somtimes known as ecstasy, Coricidin (DXM) abusers refer to the bright-red pills as “Skittles.”
Another odd dimension to this entire narrative of going to the 7-11 for “Tea and Skittles” is the distance from where he was to the nearest convienience store. MarketTicker asks the question and does some simple research: Trayvon Martin was allegedly out at night, on foot and in a rainstorm getting iced tea and skittles. Ok, here’s the address where the altercation took place from the police report:
2381 Retreat View Cir Sanford, FL 32771 – Now go to Google Maps and type in that address. Next, find me a convenience store — you know, a place to buy skittles and an iced tea. Just type in “convenience store” in the “Search Nearby” box. Where’s the closest one and how far is it on foot?

The purple DOT is his location. The closest “convienience store” is a mile away. In a rainstorm, for a bag of skittles and can of iced tea, both ways? Possible? Sure. Plausible? That story ought to be able to be checked, and rather easily — all convenience stores these days have video recorders.
So has anyone checked to see if indeed the deceased hiked the anywhere from 2-4 miles to and from one of the half-dozen convenience stores in the general area (none closer than about a mile on foot, incidentally, and all somewhat of a pain in the ass to get to due to what appears to be a limited access highway — 417 — between the location and the stores which would force you to walk quite a bit further than you could go “as the crow flies”.)
These are pretty basic questions. In fact the closest convenience store is a Murphy USA; to reach the others north of the location (the ones south are a LOT further) you’d have to walk past it, so it’s highly likely that’s the store — if the story of going out for skittles and iced tea holds up.
Does it? Has anyone checked?
