The drug testing results are not as clear as what they may seem though.

Related plants can leave chemical traces that are close enough to give false positives, especially for a test that isn't designed to distinguish between them. Tobacco is part of the nightshade family, so related Old World plants might give a false positive. Mandrake can also leave similar chemical (iirc alkaloid) traces to those of cocaine.
