The opium poppy is a type of plant in which opium and poppy seedscome from. Opium is where many narcotics like morphine, are takenfrom.
In short, yes. With poppy seeds you can grow the opium poppy plantbut, that will not give you opium right away. Once the plant hasgrown you must extract the opium from the pop…py in order to haveraw opium. Note: you must have special seeds and I'll leave it atthat. It should be noted that while many governments may allow thegrowing of any poppies when done in a way that's obviously onlyornamental, that any attempt to actually harvest opium, even a tinyamount, from poppies is a felony in the United States and manyother countries.
Crude opium is mostly morphine. It also includes codeine, thebaine, papaverive, and others. The morphine can be further processed with acetic anhydride to produce heroin
Opium poppy seeds, of course.
1) They claim that there land is to 'salty' to grow other crops 2) Opium sells for much for that rice
Yes, you can grow opium poppies in an aerogarden.
Ah, no!!! U must be high just for asking that question!! Have u not seen on T.V., the gov't destroying acres upon acres of this stuff!! You WILL test positive for opiates if …u consume to many poppie seeds and eat them on a regular basis. (i.e bagels, poppie seed bread, cookies, ect...) So, if ur taking regular drug screenings u should inform whomever it is about ur poppie seed intake, just to be on the safe side!!!!
The poppies grow in Flanders Field - this came from the war poemwritten by John McCrae. Flanders is the Dutch speaking partnorthern of Belgium
Although possession of opium poppy seeds is not illegal in the United States, growing opium poppies is illegal. Since WikiAnswers goes by the laws of the United States, we …cannot provide information on how to grow opium poppies.
Yes, opium poppies grow almost anywhere. Check your stain for climate.
In Poppy Seeds
Poppies (Papaver somniferum) are specifically scheduled under U.S. Law. The U.S. Controlled substances act, schedule ll lists "Opium poppy and poppy straw" as a psychoactive n…arcotic. There is some (actually much) confusion in the law, because opium-producing poppies are widely grown all around the US and Canada and the opium poppy seeds are present in cooking, breads, and deserts. The grey-blue poppy seeds sold in virtually every grocery store in the US contain low levels of opiates (not at psychoactive amounts when used in cooking). Poppy pods are widely used in dry flower arrangements in every state and available at all craft shops. Law enforcement in the US is somewhat inconsistent about these plants, there are continual attempts to try to stop them from being sold or grown and If poppies are grown as sources for opiates, there is no question that it violates the CSA. If poppies are purely grown for ornamental purposes, their legal position is somewhat less clear cut, since they are so widely grown and available. Any good lawyer would probably have pictures of Poppies growing in both the arresting officers garden and on the presiding judges backyard not to mention the sale of such plants in every garden center across the U.S.A.
You can grow opium poppies in Idaho, but they make terrible cut flowers. Some varieties, like Papaver somniferum var. paeoniflorum "Red Bombast" make a better cut flower than …most, but traditionally you enjoy your poppies IN the garden, not the vase where they sadly hang there heads down and droop within minutes. poppyemporium.com
yes for flower purposes only. its legal in all of US
you grind the seeds and dissolve them with acetone the us government kows this but chemical companies like dow, dupont ,union carbide and all the drug companies have huge… pacs and lots of lobbyists so the government cant find out why small farms in costa rico panama mexico or even the usa need truckloads of acetone. it is more beneficial to individual congressmen and senators to take pac $$ than to stop drug traffic
