All About Phencyclidine, Also Known As PCP

Phencyclidine is also known as PCP. It is a synthetic, dissociative anesthesia. It is classified as a hallucinogenic drug and a Schedule II substance under the Controlled Substances Act. Originally produced for its anesthetic properties, it has been discontinued in human medicine because it produced postoperative delirium with hallucinations and other harmful and bizarre effects. It is recognized as an NMDA receptor antagonist that can cause brain damage and can cause neurotoxicity or toxic poisoning of neurons. It alters normal activity in the brain and central nervous system producing the effects of the anesthesia and detachment from self and the environment.

Phencyclidine (PCP)

pcp abuse

Different forms of PCP may be called by different slang names.

Phencyclidine abuse began in the 1960’s and was sold on the streets under the name of other popular hallucinogens, such as LSD, MDA, mescaline, and THC. In the 1970’s, Phencyclidine pills became known as “PeaCe Pills”, hence, the term PCP. Snorting and smoking PCP became popular in the late 1970’s because the euphoric “high” was more immediate. Since then, Phencyclidine has been abused in countless ways and is added to other substances to create different or intensified effects. It is produced, illegally, in clandestine laboratories and sold under various slang terms or street names in various consistencies. It can be taken orally, snorted, injected, or smoked and comes in liquid, powder, or pill forms.
