[Homestead] Drug screens and the way things should be

Yup, folks forget the poppy seed muffins and the poppy seed salad dressings.
What they don't think of also is that lots of natural and organic foods have
hemp in them. They also don't realise that coffee, tea, carbonated drinks
and high acid foods can make a body retain some things in the body and
change how some things react to the testing.
Some additives and preservatives in foods can cause weird effects when
combined with things like Ibuprophen.
The list is long and most places don't tell you. The hospital I worked at
was a county hospital and they did all the employee drug testing for
businesses and all the folks for probation, etc. They handed out a list
that you had to check things off on. It was a much better way of running
the tests, IMNSHO <g> Folks are more inclined to remember if they read a
list and "poppy seed muffins" are on the list!

Yes, I'm reminded of the Jewish chaplain in one of the branches of the
armed services who kept failing his drug test. Turned out he had a
jones all right -- for poppy seed bagels.
