It isn't consistent in theme or action and that's important in fiction. Characters need to act within a specific range that their psychology has defined. One of the themes of the show has been the destructive nature of drugs and how they cause characters to act irrationally. Tuco, Jesse, Jane. All either destroyed themselves, were going to destroy themselves, or did something so stupid as to get themselves killed immediately after using.

Walt snorting a line of the blue then enacting a clever ruse to wipe out the AB isn't consistent with the themes of the show.
