Effects of PCP
According to http://www.drugs.com/illicit/pcp.html "A moderate amount of PCP often causes users to feel detached, distant, and estranged from their surroundings. Numbness of the extremities, slurred speech, and loss of coordination may be accompanied by a sense of strength and invulnerability. A blank stare, rapid and involuntary eye movements, and an exaggerated gait are among the more observable effects. Auditory hallucinations, image distortion, severe mood disorders, and amnesia may also occur. In some users, PCP may cause acute anxiety and a feeling of impending doom; in others, paranoia and violent hostility, and in some, it may produce a psychoses indistinguishable from schizophrenia. Many believe PCP to be one of the most dangerous drugs of abuse."

What should I do if I hear about kids in my school using drugs?
If i heard about kids in my school using drugs I would immediately contact a teacher and not interfere directly with who's kids. I would also make other kids aware of the problem so that they wouldn't get involved with the problem
