If it's a drugs test we're talking about here, then it's one of those questions where you might get a different answer for every person you ask. In my opinion, baking soda does not, and can not, help you pass a test.

The myth seems to come from the fact that baking soda (or, to give it its scientific name, sodium bicarbonate) is often used as a cleaning agent, such as in toothpaste, or for ridding the body of excess acid, for example if you suffered from heartburn. 

As far as I can tell however, it cannot rid the body of all traces of meth, weed, or whatever you may have taken.

Excessive Consumption of Baking Soda is Dangerous

If you must try it for yourself, do not do anything foolish as to consume an entire jar or box of baking soda, as this is likely to do you serious harm or even kill you.

It may sound dull, but the best way to pass a drugs test is to keep clear of drugs.
