Chia seed problems

I've been eating chia seeds lately...around an ounce a day on my greek yogurt as I've heard they're so good for you. That being said, next week, I have a drug screen with a new employer coming up. Does anyone know if this causes a positive result? I've heard poppy seeds do this and now I'm really nervous!

They are unrelated. Poppy seeds come from the plant that produces Opium, so that's why you can get a positive. To be comfortable, you might like to suspend the chia seed eating this week, but I'm sure there is nothing to be concerned about. Google it.
