Unfortunately, DR cannot believe the pharmacist. First, the pharmacist exhibits the classic symptoms of opiate use, including pinpoint pupils, drowsiness, and itching. Second, the amount of codeine and morphine found in poppy-seed bagels is not enough to cause symptoms of intoxication. Third, morphine typically predominates over codeine when poppy seeds are ingested. The pharmacist's drug screen shows a predominance of codeine, as would be seen after codeine ingestion.
