Phencyclidine, or PCP, is a drug that was originally tested as an anesthetic. It is a stimulant and a hallucinogen, and comes in powder, capsule, or liquid form. It is considered the most hazardous of all hallucinogens and has been known to cause users to become violent, occasionally injuring themselves and others.
The genuine care and concern Mr. Ali showed us during a difficult time were very much appreciated. It has been a long journey, however, Mr. Ali and the team at Ali & Blankner have been there with us each step along the way.T.M.
