Ask the Diva: Will Hemp Milk Make You Fail  a Drug Test

Q. I have been reading a lot about the benefits of hemp and would like to add it into my diet.  I am concerned that consuming these foods might make me test positive on a drug test. Do you know if consuming hemp milk or seeds could show on a drug test? If so, how much would I have to consume?
