    This may sound like a rather odd question, but can anyone name me a relatively easy to acquire powder that could be easily and harmlessly snorted, without any sort of effects? I promise I'm not cutting drugs! I'm in a play in which drugs are involved (Cymbeline adapted by Kneehigh for any theatre buffs) and I thought it would be effective for us to actually physically snort a powder.

    Any ideas?

    I have seen people snort splenda before as a joke. He can't say if it is entirely harmless, but it produces no psychoactive effects and supposedly isn't too unpleasant to insufflate, though there is a bit of a sweet after taste.

    yea, tylenol. not the best thing for you. But a line or two won't kill you. white smarties are always fun

    It's a good job you actually said what the play was, or noone would have believed you. Sugar is good - doesn't hurt too much won't do any harm. Avoid talcum powder at any cost though. That is similar too asbestos in many ways, and kills quite a few babies every year.

    lol, don't rail a fatass line of old bay. Yes, the seasoning. How swim knows, and a better question is why? Women, a dumb idea, and a big pair of balls.

    Benadryl is also dumb. less than a matchhead and you'll cry like a bitch.

    powdered sugar could work as long as it's inhaled very lightly

    I would not recommend actually snorting anything at all. It's not a very pleasant experience and snorting anything can irritate the nasal passageways. You don't want someone to get a nose bleed right in the middle of the play. In addition, snorting something could lead to infection of the sinuses, pneumonia, or even pulmonary obstruction.

    There's got to be better ways of doing it. Most of the audience isn't going to be close enough to actually see if something is being snorted or just being sneakily dumped off the table by a quick movement of the hand.

    Its quite an intimate performance space, and the whole point is that it isn't pleasant! I want to audience to SEE it being snorted and to have a reaction to it. I once saw a piece of theatre where a woman downed two bottles of wine (you knew it was wine because she took the packaging off and cork out) in one, and continued acting. Unpleasant but very effective onstage! It made me feel sick just watching it.

    it's harmless, it's just sugar.
    plus it's already crushed up and good consistancy.
    it burns a bit but that might give You the effect he is looking for.
    just be sure You trys/practices it before if he snorts too much it might make his eyes water.

    Well, then you need something water soluble, non-crystalline and relatively non-active physiologically.

    I would second the lactose suggestion.

    Isn't that brightly coloured? That would ruin the whole effect. And the audience isn't likely to know if it burns or not. If something burns it is more likely to be damaging the nose.

    Wait... How do you know that it burns?

    yea I didn't really think about the colors, for some reason he remembered one of them being white.

    anyway, as for how swim knows it burns, well back in junior high My friends and I weren't very mature that and add
