Largest ever seizure of opium poppies, used to produce heroin
CHQR Newsroom
10/9/2009

Canada Border Services Agency officers with the Calgary Commercial Operations Office have made a record bust of opium poppy pods.
On two separate occasions, more than 7200 kilos were seized worth an estimated $14.5 million on the street.

The first bust happened September 22nd, when officers found more than 12 skids of dried poppy pods, valued at more than $5 million.
The next day,officers became suspicious when a second commercial container declared 'dried flowers' awaiting clearance for entry into Canada.

26 skids of poppy pods were found worth more than $9 million.
Typically, opium poppy pods are crushed into a powder form and used to make heroin.

jesus christ journalists are stupid. they don't use poppy PODS to make heroin, but the latex that poppy pods excrete when sliced.
