A bitter, white powder, PCP is easily dissolved in water or alcohol, the agency's website said. The powder can be snorted or ingested and in liquid form, some users dip tobacco or marijuana cigarettes in it.
Dr. Tama Sawyer, managing director of the University of Kansas Medical Center's Poison Control Center, told Fox4 that the family in Kansas City is lucky. Not only can PCP make a person very violent, but overdoses can be deadly.
Sawyer said she has never seen a report of a child under the age of 1 having ingested the drug.
"In severe overdoses, it can actually lead to coma and death, and it tends to shut down body organs," Sawyer told the news station.
Detectives continue to investigate the case to determine if the poisoning was accidental.
