Yes consuming sesame seeds can make you fail a drug test due to a false positive.

Sesame Seeds contain trace amounts of morphine and codeine which are substances that are found in opium and heroin.

Those substances can show up in a urine test and give a false positive on a drug test so if you need to pass a drug test avoid eating any sesame seeds at least for a day before taking the drug test.
