Is PCP the same as acid? Sorry I don’t use drugs so don’t know the difference.

Someone said this was a new form of acid or a new form of the bath salts.

Also have been told that some bath salts mimic cocaine. Not sure don’t use it.

PCP is phencyclidine, C17H25N, typically used as an animal tranquilizer, but also widely (and illegally) used in several forms as an hallucinogen, which has the temporary effect in most humans of removing fear and thus decreasing inhibiti ons in what would be otherwise risk situations.

"Acid" is lysergic acid diethylamide, usually the variant "25", which is derived from naturally occurring mold called 'ergot' on the grain rye. CIA experiments dating from the 1950s have demonstrated quite thoroughly that the use of LSD-25 (or many of its variants) can induce either pleasant hallucinations or a marked state of paranoia, or some gradation in between. Chemically impure LSD-25 is EXTREMELY dangerous and has been proven to be fatal many times, perhaps most infamously at the Woodstock concert, where even the PA announcers repeated the message "Don't eat the brown acid!" (one possible preparation)

Hope this is of some use to you, easily verified by any competent chemist, and FReegards!

No. PCP is animal tranquilizer, and it has a different effect on humans, often making them agitated or violent with continued use.

Acid (LSD) is an halucinogenic, which alters the user's perception of reality, but can produce behaviour anywhere from euphoric to violent, depending on the person, their mood, circumstances, and events (lots of variables).

I don't use drugs, either, but since I joined the Army, I've learned more about drugs than I ever wanted to know (the Army wants us to recognize signs of drug use). Anyway, PCP is phenylcyclopiperidine (or phencyclidine) and acid is lysergic acid diethanolamine; they are very different drugs with different mechanisms of action. Bath salts is a new drug. Another new drug, a form of synthetic marijuana, is called spice or K2. So far, spice is still legal. I don't expect it to remain that way for long.

PCP is an animal tranquilizer vets use...with psychoactive properties

LSD is a powerful hallucinogenic developed in the 50s by Albert Hoffman and Sandoz.

Besides the baby boom, it is largely responsible for the cultural upheaval foisted by middle and upper middle class white kids in the West from 1963-1980 and on

I took it quite a bit. And we were fairly serious about what that entailed. It can be very scary and though I have sharp mixed feelings over my own use I strongly do NOT recommend it to anyone not prepared.

And being prepared has not much to do with intellect or maturity.

It’s more about having a resilient psyche...sounds like fun eh? (s)

LSD’s cousins are psylocibin mushrooms and peyote....the latter being a superior trip agent in my view that LSD or mushrooms.

I never had a habit...LSD is not habit forming ...quite the contrary. I simply outgrew a desire to alter my states. The usual culprits...maturity...kids...bills...a woman on my arm..

the last being by far the best intoxicant made for man...no question...the warm glow and touch of a beautiful woman dwarfs the best dope buzz
