All About Phencyclidine, Also Known As PCP

Phencyclidine (PCP) is a synthetic, or man-made, dissociative, hallucinogenic, drug that induces distortions of sight, and sound. It also, has anesthetic properties for which it was originally produced in the 1950’s. Because of the extreme and bizarre effects Phencyclidine had on individuals, the use was discontinued except for rare circumstances where it may still be used in veterinary medicine. In 1978, Phencyclidine (PCP) “was transferred from Schedule III to Schedule II under the Controlled Substances Act”, according to the DEA, because of its increased potential for abuse. In the 1960’s it had become known as “The PeaCe Pill,” or PCP, and abuse spread throughout the 1970’s.

Different Forms of PCP

phencyclidine

Slang names for PCP vary depending on what the drug is mixed with and what form it is in.

PCP comes in powder or liquid forms and is produced in clandestine laboratories which produce uncontrolled variations of PCP and PCP combined with other substances. It may be sold under the guise of other drugs such as LSD, mescaline, THC, methamphetamine, formaldehyde, MDMA, and Ecstasy. PCP can be taken orally, smoked or, injected (uncommon). The preferable method is to be smoked. Cigarettes, marijuana joints, or other leafy substances are dipped in the PCP and smoked for an immediate and intense “high”. Many people refer to PCP as “embalming fluid” and this is a misnomer because embalming fluid does not, actually, contain PCP. The name is thought to originate from the anesthetic or “numbing” effects and dissociative properties that made the person feel weightless and “outside of reality”. People mistakenly, have used embalming fluid thinking they are using PCP treated with formaldehyde and this mistake can be catastrophic.
