The funniest thing about opium in the United States, in my opinion... Is that it cannot be regulated. The most popular poppies grown in our grandma's
backyards is the opium variety - papauver somniferum.
The only power the War on Drugs has, is that most people don't know this.
As for big Pharma, I think they contract Afghanistan and Tasmania to grow for medication use... Shame, we could be growing them and keeping the
profit here, but then the people might find out that opium poppy seeds can be bought in any store. Or dried out in the floral shops.
