Popped up positive on a urine test for morphine and codeine. NEVER took either of them. Had 6 poppy seed muffins in two days. Will a hair test save my job?

Back in 1998 the the US government changed the urine cut-off level, making it higher (2000ng/ml), so there would be less false positives for opiates due to poppy seeds. If they used the lower cut-off level of 300ng/ml shame on them for not know what they are doing. Was the urine test they did on you a rapid screening test or was it a lab test? The reason I ask this is if you showed positive on a rapid screening test they should have sent it to a lab for GC/MS confirmation. If they did do a confirmation test it could have been able to detect the difference between poppy seed and real opiates. If they still have some urine left over you should insist on a GC/MS confirmation test. A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. A 1.5 inch sample of hair cut at the scalp line will go back 90 days. A hair drug test might help you with your employer. A hair test is very good at telling the difference between real opiates and poppy seeds. Hope this helps.

thanks for the info. I just paid to get it re tested. It will still take 10 to 15 days to get back, so I am running out of time.

Need to know if someone took two tylenol-3 (w/ codeine) within a month and took a hair drug test 2 weeks later if it would cause you to fail that drug test?

If I touched herion 3 weeks ago and the person I was sleeping with was using herion. Will a hair follicle test show up positive for herion
