PCP and Ketamine PCP PCP was first used in the 1950s as a general anesthetic in both humans and other animals under the name Sernyl. It left patients with a feeling of dissociation and delirium, and was therefore discontinued in this field, and made illegal for humans. After this, it was only used on animals. In the 1970’s, however, humans got a hold of PCP as not as a medical anesthetic, but as a party drug. This abuse of PCP started in San Francisco. The drug rose in popularity because it is very easy to make and not very expensive. There are many ways to use PCP: tablets, powder, liquid, on different leaves, rock. PCP can be mixed with cigarettes; this mixture can be called “supercool”, “hydro”, “dip”, “wet”, or “fry”. Other names for PCP are: “Peace Pill”, “Angel Dust”, “T”, “ozone”, “rocket fuel”, “love boat”, “hog”, “embalming fluid”, “superweed”, or “wack”. Though there are many names and ways to use PCP, the effects remain the same.
