Poppy Positive Hair: Hello. Ingesting poppy seed laden foods shouldn't cause a preliminary hair analysis to be positive. IF there are questions about false positives from the washed 1.5 inches of hair strand sample, then confirmation testing will determine if indeed there was more than just poppy causing the hair sample to be positive for opiates- particularly morphine.
