PCP was developed in the 1950s as an intravenous anesthetic, but its use for humans was discontinued because it caused patients to become agitated, delusional, and irrational. Today individuals abuse PCP because of the mind-altering, hallucinogenic effects it produces.
Embalming fluid is a compound of formaldehyde, methanol, ethanol (ethyl alcohol), and other solvents. Embalming fluid reportedly produces a hallucinogenic effect and causes the cigarette to burn more slowly, potentially resulting in a prolonged high.
Marijuana is the mind-altering substance produced from a plant with the scientific name Cannabis stiva. The drug is used because its primary active chemical--tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)--may induce relaxation and heighten the senses.
Effects from exposure to embalming fluid include bronchitis, body tissue destruction, brain damage, lung damage, impaired coordination, and inflammation and sores in the throat, nose, and esophagus. Embalming fluid is extremely carcinogenic. Because cigarettes soaked with embalming fluid tend to burn more slowly, users may experience increased negative side effects.
Even at low doses marijuana impairs attention and coordination and affects the way the mind processes information. Because of these effects, marijuana use has contributed to automobile, household, and occupational accidents, resulting in harm to the user and to others. High doses of marijuana may result in image distortion, loss of personal identity, and hallucinations. The abuse of marijuana also can cause serious physical and mental problems including frequent respiratory infections, impaired memory and learning ability, increased heart rate, anxiety, and panic attacks. Individuals who regularly abuse tobacco or marijuana may experience cough, phlegm, chronic bronchitis, and frequent chest colds. Marijuana smokers increase their risk of cancer of the head, neck, lungs, and respiratory tract due to the toxins and carcinogens contained in the drug.
