PCP's Violent Side Effects
Many people have questions about what exactly PCP does to the user. Is it really so dangerous? What are the side effects? Is it worse than other drugs? Well, the truth is that PCP has been shown to be one of the most violent drugs currently in use. PCP has hallucinogenic and neurotoxic properties. It's a dissociative drug, which makes people lose control over their actions and thoughts. It also causes numbness of the body and mind. Even at small doses, taking PCP can cause alterations in mood, paranoia, hallucinations, aggression, suicidal tendencies, and euphoria. Simply put, PCP is a drug that has a huge amount of influence to change the human brain.
People use PCP by eating, smoking, or inhaling. The various street names include "embalming fluid" and "angel dust." It's widely used in low-income neighborhoods and among low socioeconomic populations-which are, coincidentally, areas that have higher rates of violence. And PCP does make you very violent. In one well-publicized case, a rapper named Big Lurch took a large dose of PCP. He became convinced that his roommate was the devil, and he ended up eating part of her lung.
Because it's so unpredictable, and because of its potential to induce violence and aggression, PCP is not something that should be experimented with. You wouldn't want to try it once and find yourself behind bars for assault. And if you already have a problem with PCP usage, don't despair. You can turn your life around. The right program of treatment can help you get rid of addiction and stay clean.
