Is 2C-P a Class A drug?

2C-P is part of a group of the 2C family of narcotics which all have hallucinogenic and stimulant effects.

It’s a Class A drug so it’s illegal to take for yourself, give away or sell.

Possession of the drug can get you up to seven years in prison and or just an unlimited fine.

And supplying someone else, even a friend, can get you life in prison, or and an unlimited fine.

What are its effects?

Users say that 2Cs can give a burning sensation and be painful to snort.

According to FRANK, the effects of the illegal 2C drugs are a cross between ecstasy and LSD and usually come in pill form.

Effects include an energy buzz with possible feelings of alertness, hallucinations, headaches and nausea.

Users can feel really aware of colours, sounds and smells or experience distorted senses.

And at high doses – more serious confused, agitated or even delirious states.

Panic attacks and even an acute psychosis has been reported.

There is a risk of over-stimulating the heart and circulation.

How long does it stay in the system?

Users will not feel the effects of 2C-P until a few hours after taking it.

So there’s a risk that users may ingest alcohol and take other drugs before the effects become apparent.

The effects have been reported usually to last from two to four hours but sometimes for some hours longer.

The more ingested, the more uncontrollable the experience can be.

FRANK said the length of time the drug may stay in your system depends on how much you’ve taken, your size, if you have eaten and other drugs you may have taken.
