George Zimmerman's attorneys have released new evidence taken from Trayvon Martin's cell phone.

His attorneys say the data paints a different picture of the 17-year-old Martin than what his family and supporters have described.

The evidence includes text message discussions of drug use, photos of marijuana and martin blowing smoke, and a picture of a firearm.

The attorney for Trayvon's family said the evidence is irrelevant and won't be used in Zimmerman's trial.

Zimmerman faces second-degree murder charges for shooting Martin in Florida 14 months ago and says he shot the teen in self defense.
