"Opium is the milky substance that is extracted along with the poppy seeds from the seed pod of the opium poppy after all the petals have fallen off".

After the hospital realized that Eden's drug test was a false-positive, her case worker closed the file. "Eating poppy seeds won't make you high; however, they contain the same chemical code detected by drug tests", he tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
