What is PCP Addiction
The Important Facts You Need to Know
When first created in 1955, Phencyclidine (PCP) was used to as an anesthetic before being pulled off the market because of its harmful side effects, namely hallucinations. PCP is also known as angel dust and abuse of the drug started to take off in the 1960’s as an alternative to other popular psychoactive agents such as LSD or psilocybin mushrooms before settling into populous cities of the country. One of the most dangerous aspects of PCP abuse is the complete disconnect from reality that we experience when taking the drug, causing us to beleive that we have super powers or are living in another time period. This has led to a multitude of accidental deaths, all of which could have been prevented. These are some of the more common signs of PCP addiction:
- Itching Sensation
- Memory Loss
- Distorted Perception of Pime
- Psychosis or Neurosis
- Visual and Auditory Hallucinations
