1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Does anyone know what would happen if you performed the simple alkaloid extraction found here: http://www.erowid.org/plants/cacti/cacti_chemistry2.shtml

    ...with citric acid for the acid and baking soda for the base?

    Is it possible?
    Is there any possiblity of the procedure resulting in negative/poisonous compounds?

    It seems sodium hydroxide is a bit caustic and hard to obtain.
