Isnít that how Alice in in wonderland started out down the rabbit hole? She fell asleep in the poppy field. Iíll have to ask Alice if I ever see her again.

No wonder that little spice jar of poppy seeds is $5.

They're not, but the drug test can't tell the difference.

Talked to the hall, no results yet. The person I spoke to said the poppyseed won't show up unless you eat a absurd quantity. He did not offer for a retest. So will have to wait and see.

LawnGuy. That’s what I read when I Googled it.
I mean I know they could make heroin in the lab just like they make morphine and other drugs. Synthetic drugs.

Big Pharma does not rely on poppy to make meds. They just copy the DNA or molecule arrangement and produce the medicine.
I guess they are not advanced enough to know the difference?

Who, big pharma or the p test cups?


I was referring to the p test cups.


AFAIK, even the lab can't tell the difference between the recent consumption of poppy seeds and less than recent heroin use.

So what food gives you a false positive for marijuana and PCP? Asking for a friend.

In the past they were done with a little dignity. This one was just odd. We were hearded like cattle across a perking lot to a make shift lab in what looked like a converted ice cream truck. They parked the truck next to an occupied office building. There was no privacy. You looked out one window at the office building, the other window was the line of guys, and in front was the guy watching to make sure you were filling the cup with your piss.



There are shore towns that balance their budget by issuing urinating in Public tickets. This seemed like that. Really felt like emptying my commuter piss on the side of the construction managerís trailer after that.



To the OP, work sites are done on the spot. At our hall they send them all out. With apprentices itís random. Usually at the beginning of the year. If someone fails it, they are removed. Pretty much zero tolerance from the JATC director. So in your case I canít see them being lenient. Good luck. I guess try to explain what happened, so if the test comes back bad, maybe theyíll let you retake it. Iím pretty sure they heard it all before.
We should require management to test too, make sure they lead by example.

That is exactly right. There is a court proceeding and he is not incriminating himself. People often fail to realize the difference between a legal proceeding and something like a condition of employment.

Another good example is free speech, and how people face consequences for what they say such as being fired, shunned from society, etc. The truth is, all that "freedom of speech" means it that the government can't arrest you for what you say barring some specific exceptions.
