While PCP is in fact in Federal schedule II it was never approved for for use in the practice of human medicine. There is a long list of veterinary drugs which are also scheduled substance. It's not a big mistake, they sure don't let people know that medicines for animals only are on that list and I don't think it intuitive at all.
But that's Federal schedule II. All States also schedule drugs under their State's Uniform Controlled substances law using scheduling lists with identical rules and format but they can decide which drugs go on which schedule. E.g. Oregon has moved Cannabis to schedule II so as far as the State of Oregon is concerned doctors can write prescriptions that an accredited pharmacy would fill. The point is that it is very possible that PCP is on your State's schedule I while still being schedule II to the Feds. Either way you're not going to get a prescription for PCP filled because it's for animals only.
