July 4th #TestItTuesday Alert: 3-MeO-PCP Sold as KetamineMadalyn McElwain
A white powder sold as ketamine has tested as 3-MeO-PCP, another dissociative that is active at much lower doses. 3-MeO-PCP is reported as more physically stimulating than ketamine and other psychedelic dissociatives. Where ketamine causes people to be physically sedated and incapacitated at strong doses, 3-MeO-PCP’s powerful effects on the mind can be accompanied by standing up, walking around, talking, and potentially doing dangerous activities. Because it is less physically sedating than ketamine, strong doses of it can cause ambulatory delirious states during which users may not realize they are unable to differentiate reality from fantasy. At least one confirmed death has been associated with its use.
Always test before you ingest to help identify adulterated or misrepresented substances. Although 3-MeO-PCP is unidentifiable with the reagent test kits, any unknown reactions are an indicator of a highly adulterated substance. Stay safe this Fourth of July and purchase your DanceSafe testing kits today to avoid ingesting an unexpected substance.
