Phencyclidine, or PCP, is a synthetic drug developed in the 1950s for use as a surgical anesthetic. Its legitimate use was discontinued after a few years, but today PCP is produced illegally.
PCP interferes with the function of your brain and central nervous system and creates an “out of body” sensation and euphoria that leads to erratic and aggressive behaviors. After your body is addicted to PCP, you experience cravings and other consequences or drug-seeking behaviors.
