poppy seed opaites, on mythbuster
    #2369435 - 02/22/04 09:45 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

i resently was watchin the tube.and on teh show they wanted to see if they coudl get false poitives from eating poppy seed bagles.

the used at home piss test opaite testers. and after 30 min after injestion of a bagel with poppy seeds he got a positive result.

i am not really familiar on how tests work. but this seems very strange. how could this test be so sensitive that it could read if there was a little codiene on the seeds, not even enough to produce effects.

and a doctor said people dont get jobs withought releasing they didnt becuase they ate a bagel before the drug test.

i think the tests where just crappy but i dunno. or perhaps there is a chemical in the seeds that produces a flase positive.

peace

seen it... i thought it was interesting. The general thought was it was a myth because there wasn't enough concentration to be detected on a test. Not to say that there's no alkaloids in the seeds. There are. But general thought was that they couldn't be in enough concentration to make it through the body concentrated enough as a metabolite to hit the detection concentration. Apparantly it did.

I thought it was interesting.

I know that poppy seeds are a by-product of the (legal) opium industry...

When I was 18, a friend and I got 2 kilos of poppy seeds, put 1k each in a 2 ltr milk bottle with warm water and lemon juice and shook the guts out of it for an hour, then drank it (LOTTA bagels in there and it tasted pretty foul). The result was a definate 'scratchy' sorta opiate stone)

I've always wondered if they were heat-sterilised or something or if they would germinate.

They'll germinate just fine.

ive seen a few reports on the poppy seed bringing positive opiate results in tests as well. One of the articles said that the US military have the levels of that certain test set like 4 times higher than what civillians use, since they are aware of the false positives produced...

i also remember something of the nature that when seeds are eaten the levels left in the body dissapate very fast... after a few hours, test results were once again at a negative level for the panel tests or whatever..

I fell off a ladder once when I was on probation and sprained my ankle. I took a few codeine pills that caused a positive for opiates in my urine test, and I blamed it on bagels and they took my word for it. Maybe my PO was just in a good mood that day.
