What It Is:

PCP, or phencyclidine, is a dangerous drug that was originally developed as an anesthetic. Its use was discontinued in humans in 1965 because of the troubling side effects. It is now illegal in the United States.

Sometimes Called:

angel dust

How It's Used:

In its pure form, PCP is a white crystalline powder. It dissolves quickly in liquids but has a distinctive, bitter chemical taste. Most PCP sold in the Black Market comes as a white or colored powder or liquid and is added to leafy substances (such as oregano, mint, or marijuana) and smoked. PCP also can be sold in pill, tablet, or capsule form to be swallowed. In some cases, PCP users snort the drug or mix it with a liquid and inject it with a syringe.

PCP can also cause these physical side effects:

  • body numbness

  • dizziness

  • drooling

  • slurred or garbled speech

  • loss of muscle coordination and balance

  • profuse sweating

  • rapid, involuntary eye movements or a blank stare

  • nausea and vomiting
