What was the opium rebellion?
The Chinese government became upset with the British government importing opium into China, around 1840.
If you are talking about the opium wars that happened in china you are right. Because the English were having a balance of trade problem as a result of their love of tea (they were paying the Chinese for it with their gold) they started to pay for the tea with opium instead. Before long the Chinese woke up to the effect that opium was having on their society and made the opium trade illegal…
No, Percocet does not have opium in it. Opium is the dried latex of the opium poppy. It is a complex mixture of chemicals, containing narcotics such as morphine and codeine. Percocet contains acetaminophen and oxycodone. Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid, it does not occur naturally in opium (though it can be synthesized from chemicals in opium).
Well assuming you live in a country where opium does not grow,you would obtain opium from a drug dealer who sells opium,if you live in the united states opium use is not as common as in Asia and the middle east,but it can,like any drug be purchased if you know the right people and have the money to buy the opium.
