Well Waddaya Know X

Last week's question and answer:
This drug is known on the streets as "angel dust":

Cocaine
9 (12%)
PCP (phencyclidine)
53 (72%)
Amphetamine
2 (2%)
Mescaline
2 (2%)
Ecstasy (MDMA)
7 (9%)
From Shragi: The answer is PCP. Phencyclidine (commonly known as PCP or angel dust) was developed in 1956 as a potent analgesic and anesthetic agent. It was soon dropped from use because patients reported effects such as agitation, excitement, delirium, hostility, and disorginization of perceptions, but PCP continues to be used as a street drug principally because of its hallucinogenic actions.

This week's question is up to the left.
