PCP (Phencyclidine)


PCP, which goes by a variety of street names, including angel dust, is a dissociative hallucinogenic drug that can lead to significant mind-altering effects. Some of the most common impacts of PCP include hallucinations, major changes in the perception of sound, feelings of superhuman strength, and extremely violent behavior. Even though this recreational drug is usually smoked, it can also be injected, snorted, or taken by mouth. Some people also mix PCP with tobacco or cannabis. Some of the side effects of PCP include coma, seizures, addiction, and an increased risk of suicide. PCP is a Schedule 2 drug in the United States, and some derivatives of PCP had them sold for nonmedical and recreational use. PCP can also cause people to develop schizophrenia, which is a mental health issue that leads to psychosis.
