I had actually heard this on Mythbusters, but it didn't take much at all to cause a false positive for the next few days, certainly not any abnormal quantity. I may re watch that episode as I had seen it years ago.

Yes, I've heard this as well. I had a friend who was in some kind of rehab program but was still using. The day she would come in for her drug test, she'd walk in eating a poppy seed bagel.
