Re: [IP] Drug tests



You can get a false positive with poppy seeds, but only if they are not
denatured (I believe).  You don't have to be concerned with it though,
because if you get a positive Opiate drug screen from poppy seeds, when it
is confirmed on a GCMS (Gas Chromotography/Mass Spectometry) machine, if
will come up undetected.
