Xanax + Baking soda?

Is it possible to cook xanax with baking soda like cocaine? And if so will it be dangerous to snort?

No, that's not how chemistry works

snorting xanax is incredibly wasteful anyway, just eat it, xanax is designed to have high bioavailability in the stomach and to have a quick onset when taken orally

Why would anyone do that? To smoke it? Just eat it!

Re: Xanax + Baking soda?

Administering Xanax sublingually (letting it dissolve under the tongue) should grant a bit faster onset and higher peak plasma concentration.

Scavone JM, Greenblatt DJ, Shader RI (1987) "Alprazolam kinetics following sublingual and oral administration."

Good reference, a little off topic but a good reference just the same.
Good reference, a little on topic but a good reference. Relates to increasing Xanax efficacy.

Re: Xanax + Baking soda?

Street cocaine occurs usually as cocaine hydrochloride salts, which is the freebase cocaine alkaloid bound to a hydrochloric acid molecule to increase water solubility, which is needed for <MOST> drugs to be absorbed by mucous membranes (i.e. those found within the lining of the mouth [buccal mucosa] and nose [nasal mucosa]). Though, being an acidic salt, its vaporization point (point at which a certain heat causes the solid to turn into a gas that is able to be inhaled) is fairly high and fairly close to its combustion point (the heat at which the cocaine degrades and becomes nearly if not completely ineffective). Adding baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), a weak base, allows the acid molecule to be ripped off, leaving behind the freebase 'crack', which has a lower vaporization point to facilitate smoking.

Xanax (alprazolam) is not an alkaloid. Adding baking soda would, if I'm not mistaken, would do nothing but to dilute the substance (one must take more of the powder to achieve the same effects). Furthermore, alprazolam is said to be water-insoluble (cannot be dissolved in water), so in theory it SHOULD NOT be active through snorting or putting under the tongue. Though SWIM has found that both these methods produce different and faster, albeit short-lived in comparison to oral, highs. The mechanics of how this is possible elude SWIM.
