Information on PCP

PCP, otherwise known as angel dust, Ashy Larry, illy, or wet, is a recreational drug that entered the market in the 1950s as an anesthetic, but was taken off the market in 1965 and limited to veterinarian use because of its side effects, including hallucinations, mania, delirium, and disorientation. By 1967, PCP emerged as a recreational drug in major U.S. cities, but by the 1980s its use had declined significantly.

PCP comes in powder and liquid forms, but it is usually sprayed onto marijuana, mint, oregano, tobacco, parsley, or ginger leaves and then smoked. PCP is a Schedule II substance in the United States and in Arizona is considered a "dangerous drug."

What Are the Penalties for PCP?

Under A.R.S. § 13-3407 (any amount), PCP offenses are as follows:

Under A.R.S. § 13-702, the sentencing for a Class 2 felony is 3 to 12.5 years in prison, and for a Class 4 felony, the sentencing is 1 to 3.75 years. The offender's conviction and probation may also include fines, community service, and mandatory drug testing.
