When was PCP invented?

Phencyclidine also known as PCP was first made in the 1926 by Parke, Davis, and Company. But it wasn't until the 1950's that it was used as an anesthetic for humans called Sernyl. It was eventually used as a tranquilizer for animals by veterinary institutes. Its use in humans was stopped in 1965 because the patients became delusional, irrational, and easily agitated after they stopped taking the drug. Today it is rarely used for medicinal reasons even for animals. PCP is considered an illegal drug but it is still manufactured in laboratories and sold on the streets by a variety of different names, such as angel dust, supergrass, ozone, and rocket fuel.

Can you get pcp out your urine in a week completely?

If PCP is used in a typical dose on a single occasion, it is likely to be undetectable by a standard urine test after a week. Of course, this can vary based on the individual, especially if liver or kidney function is impaired. If PCP is used regularly, it can usually be detected in a urine test for about a month.
