Judge: Jury Can Hear About Trayvon Martin's Marijuana Use

Originally published on Tue July 9, 2013 6:04 am

In Sanford, Fla., lawyers for George Zimmerman are presenting witnesses who back up his claim that he was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed teenager Trayvon Martin. They include several people who identify Zimmerman as the person heard screaming for help in a 911 call. And, Zimmerman's defense got another boost on Monday when the judge ruled the jury can hear evidence of drug use by Martin.
