Wake N’ Blog: Yet Another Example Of Life Imitating ‘Seinfeld’: The Poppy Seed Drug Test

Wake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s morning link dump. Send tips, link submissions and ways you have tried getting out of failed drug tests to weedagainstspeed@gmail.com.

• The ACLU has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of Pennsylvania couple who allege their newborn daughter was taken away from them because the mother failed a drug test which she insists was the result of eating  a poppy seed bagel. “The suit says the couple’s 3-day-old daughter was taken from the couple’s home and held for five days before authorities admitted they had made a mistake and returned the child.” Wow. Sure, that story is much worse than Elaine not being able to go visit the Massai bushmen, but at least this mother was accused of being menopausal and having the metabolism of a sixty-eight year old woman.
