PCP (phencyclidine) was developed in the 1950s as an intravenous anesthetic.
PCP use in humans was discontinued
in 1965, because patients often became agitated, delusional, and irrational while recovering from its anesthetic effects. PCP is illegally manufactured in laboratories and is sold on the street by such names as angel dust, ozone, wack, and rocket fuel. Killer joints and crystal spergrass are names that refer to PCP combined with marijuana.
PCP is a white crystalline powder that is readily soluble in
water or alcohol. It has a distinctive bitter chemical
taste. PCP can be mixed easily with dyes and turns up on the
illicit drug market in a variety of tablets, capsules, and
colored powders. It is normally used in one of three ways:
snorted, smoked, or ingested. For smoking, PCP is often
applied to a leafy material such as mint, parsley, oregano,
The drug's effects are as varied as its appearance. A moderate amount of PCP often causes the user to feel detached, distant and estranged from his surroundings.
Numbness, slurred speech and loss of coordination may be accompanied by a sense of strength and invulnerability. Much like certain staff members suffer when its time to work, a blank stare, rapid and involuntary eye movements, and an exaggerated gait are among the more observable effects of PCP.
