The propagators of the field were selling the dried pods, not producing heroin.

The way that it was reported was that the field had the potential to produce thirteen pounds of raw opium that could be processed into heroin. :whatever:

Selling heroin down there would be a really bad idea.  Bet that the field was really pretty while it lasted though.

How are they flowering already?  Too early to flower yet.  Should be around the summer solstice they stretch, then flower after that.

I thought you can get several harvests a year?

I'm at about the same latitude, and it's pretty normal around here.  I have some of those tasmanian whites that are putting out their last blossoms and there were swansdown types that were blooming way earlier than that.

And one commercial plot of castor beans has the potential to produce enough ricin to kill more people than the holocaust. But I don't see LEO burning down Farmer John's crop.

Just actually harvesting the latex would be an ordeal in and of itself, you'd have to transport in truckloads of migrant workers to start. Then effectively refining the latex into something resembling morphine base which could be used to produce heroin requires knowledge and technical skills beyond the scope of your average layman, and finally to produce diamorphine from said base you would need reagents which are strictly controlled and monitored, acquiring enough to produce a lb of heroin would be nearly impossible without the help of a criminal empire.

In the meantime, I could have picked whichever compound tickled my fancy from a plethora of fentanyl analogs and had enough to kill every single man, woman, and child living in my state delivered to my front door by the United States Postal Service before you could even get a single poppy seed to germinate and take root. But as long as those pigs can sleep at night thinking they have done more good than harm in the world, I guess its a worthwhile use of taxpayer resources.

I wouldn't believe that society's function depends solely on the legality of a plant. Weak society

Guess we gotta keep the workers sober.

Does anyone know who the vendor was? That's a shame though... Could've made some beautiful floral arrangements
