Hello,

I have a drug test Friday and ate a everything bagel from tim hortons, which contained poppy seeds.. Does anyone know if the poppy seed would fail a drug test? If it just one bagel?

It's a reasonable question. My mom once failed an insurance drug test because she had recently been in Peru and everyone there drinks coca leaf tea all the time. Whatever method the lab uses to test for cocaine use picked up on the tea.

They let her retake the test any everything was ok.

But I have no idea if the same thing can happen with poppy seeds. It could easily be a whole different way that they do opiod testing.

If they do really set off a false positive, they sometimes send your piss sample to some specialty lab to verify your case.

Now I know why millions of Canadians line up at Tim Horton's when their coffee and all their menu offerings are garbage.
