BUMMER TRIP: Another term for a bad trip, this refers to negative experiences while taking a drug.
DEPERSONALIZATION: A feeling of detachment from one’s own mind and body. People experiencing deper-sonalization might feel they are watching themselves from a distance.
DISSOCIATIVE: A drug action that makes people feel cut off from themselves, their bodies, and reality.
DUSTED: Being intoxicated on PCP.

Overview

Phencyclidine, commonly known as PCP, is a difficult drug to categorize. The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) categorizes it as a hallucinogen, like LSD, because it can make people see, hear, or sense things that are not there. Scientists categorized PCP as a dissociative anesthetic because it has a profound numbing effect and makes people feel like they are somehow separated from their bodies.
In fact, PCP was first developed as an anesthetic for use during surgical procedures, but side effects led to its falling out of favor for this purpose in the 1960s. It was used as an animal anesthetic in veterinary medicine for a few years, but as people on the street began to abuse the drug more and more, all legal manufacture of PCP stopped in 1978.
The effects of taking PCP are unique. At lower doses, the drug causes stimulation; while at higher doses, it tends to have a depressant effect. Most people find a PCP high to be disturbing because of the sense of separation from the body it produces. In fact, taking PCP results in the same type of experiences that sensory deprivation does, such as altered awareness of the boundaries of the body and dissociation from body parts. This strange sensation makes many people panic. Such people have been known to seriously harm themselves and others.
People on PCP have impaired judgment similar to that which is produced by drinking too much alcohol. The drug can also numb the body so much that people are virtually impervious to pain. The resulting combination can be deadly. People on PCP may do crazy things, like jump into frigid water or set themselves on fire, and not feel the pain that it produces until severe injury or death results.
A PCP high can be so unpleasant that many people will not knowingly take the drug more than once. However, PCP is quite easy and cheap to produce. As a result, PCP is very often sold on the street disguised as another drug, from marijuana to LSD to mescaline.
PCP acts on several chemicals in the brain, called neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, NMD A, and GABA. Recently, studies in animals have suggested that taking PCP results in brain changes that are associated with the mental disorder schizophrenia. People with schizophrenia have many of the same symptoms as people taking PCP, including paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, disordered thinking, and disrupted speech.
PCP is very similar to another drug that was also initially developed as an anesthetic, ketamine. Both these drugs have experienced a recent increase in their popularity as drugs of abuse, particularly among those who attend clubs and all-night dance parties called raves.
PCP is a completely artificial substance. That is, it is not derived from anything in nature; it is made purely from industrial chemicals. In fact, police are often tipped off to the presence of an illegal PCP laboratory when neighbors complain of terrible chemical smells or when careless criminals create chemical fires and explosions.
In its pure form, PCP is a white crystalline powder that easily dissolves in water to produce a clear liquid. Often, street PCP is contaminated with chemical impurities, which can change a white powder or clear liquid to tan or brown and change the consistency from powder to sludge. Purity of street PCP can range from 5% to 100%, but 100% pure PCP is considered to be extremely rare on the street. A common contaminant in PCP is a chemically related drug called PCC, which releases cyanide when burned. It does not produce enough cyanide to cause symptoms with one use, but use over time can lead to brain cell and nerve damage.
Street PCP is often contaminated with other chemicals because its easy and cheap manufacture makes it attractive to drug producers without a chemical background. These amateur drug makers do not know how to purify their final product or perform proper experiments to test for purity.
PCP is easy and cheap to manufacture but not very popular, so it is often sold as another drug. Most often, it is sold on the street as THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. In fact, real THC is almost impossible to obtain on the street. PCP might also be sprayed or sprinkled on oregano, parsley, or another herb and sold as marijuana. Alternatively, lower quality marijuana might be laced with PCP to make it seem more potent. Other drugs that PCP is sold as include LSD, cannabinol, mescaline, psilocybin, amphetamine, methamphetamine, peyote, cocaine, Hawaiian woodrose, and other psychedelics. In one study, only 3% of analyzed street drugs containing PCP were sold as PCP.
PCP is very often mixed with other drugs to produce special highs. PCP mixed with crack is known as wack, space base, beam me up Scottie, clicker, dusty roads, DOA, missile basing, mist, space cadet, space dust, tragic magic, and wickey. PCP mixed with marijuana is known as supergrass, killer weed, super weed, dusters, crystal supergrass, killer joints, ace, bohd, chips, frios, lovelies, peace weed, stick, yerba mala, and zoom. PCP combined with heroin is known as oil or polvo.
Other combinations include PCP with LSD, (black acid), cocaine, methamphetamine, amphetamine, and MDMA (ecstasy). PCP may also be combined with more than one drug at a time.
There are several drugs that are chemically similar to PCP, which are often sold on the street as PCP or other drugs. These include PCPy, TCP, and PCE. Given the makeshift ways in which illegal PCP is manufactured, probably many people who think they are producing and selling PCP are actually producing one of these similar drugs. They are classified as Schedule I hallucinogens by the DEA, which is the same category as LSD.
