It would take a decent sized garden full of poppies to get one or two doses of opium and it'd be unrefined, probably not even smokable, just edible.


That's not true...

erowid.org...


. I have references which list young plants 10-20cm high as having up to 71 mg/100g dry weight of alkaloids. This can seem insignificant until you consider that opium is only about 12% alkaloids, and you can end up with a kilo of thinnings or more in your home garden. I estimate a couple of grams of smokeable opium type extract can be extracted using methanol. And given that thinnings usually appear prior to flowering commencing, why would you waste a chance?


It's extremely easy to grow poppies and make opium. It's also fairly easy to extract opiates directly from the opium goop.

Great to see this. My oldest son was a drug addict. He was into stuff like xanax though. He has known so many good people that OD'd on fentanyl. I mean it's so much worse than people think. I think the number last year was around 30,000 people died from the drug or maybe it was opioids in general, but it is still terrible to think about.

Once again it has been proven to me that my vote for Trump was a smart decision.
