The Pentagon has just confirmed a longstanding theory in the stoner community: Eating poppy seed bagels can lead to a failed drug test.

In a memo to U.S. armed forces, Gil Cisneros -- the under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness -- says certain varieties of poppy seeds have higher traces of codeine than previously thought. He advises troops to avoid eating bagels and other foods with poppy seeds on them.

And now Pentagon officials say they're taking a second look at all codeine-positive tests from 2019 to make sure they're accurate. "The amount of poppy seeds consumed, concentration of codeine detected in urine and time of consumption relative to the drug test are also important factors," says Department of Defense rep Nicole Schwegman.
