Q&A: Drug test showing positive for opiates?

Question by mmlxxviii: Drug test showing positive for opiates?
I just did a drug test and I got a positive result for opiates. The test was repeated with the same outcome. The thing is, I have never taken any opiates. About six weeks ago, I was at a party where a lot of pot was being smoked but certainly not any opiates. I didn’t smoke any pot. Is there any possible explanation as to why my urine shows traces of opiates?

Poppy seeds, on rolls or buns, can cause a positive result for opiates. If you’ve been eating poppy seed rolls, inform the people who tested you and ask for a retest in a couple of weeks. This is a common false positive.

    If you have had anything with poppy seeds youll test positive. I happen to like poppy seed muffins and that would make me positive, though I’ve never been tested.
