Specific Drugs and Their Effects:
Phencyclidine (PCP) interrupts the functions of the neocortex, the section of the brain that controls the intellect and keeps instincts in check.  Because the drug blocks pain receptors, violent PCP episodes may result in self-inflicted injuries.  The effects of PCP vary, but users frequently report a sense of distance and estrangement.   Time and body movement are slowed down.  Muscular coordination worsens and senses are dulled.  Speech is blocked and incoherent.  In later stages of chronic use, users often exhibit paranoid and violent behavior and experience hallucinations.  Large doses may produce convulsions and coma, as well as heart and lung failure.

Lysergic acid (LSD), mescaline and psilocybin cause illusions and hallucinations.   The physical effects may include dilated pupils, elevated body temperature, increased heart rate and blood pressure, loss of appetite, sleeplessness and tremors.   The user may experience panic, confusion, suspicion, anxiety and loss of control.   Delayed effects, or flashbacks, can occur even when use has ceased.
