Is This Opium?
    #2761199 - 06/03/04 08:58 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I found this in a field where I broadcasted poppy seeds a while back. I've never grown poppies before so I don't know what they look like when immature, but to me they look alot like the pod on the right in the following illustrations found on erowid:

and

Here's what I found:




The stems and pods leak white fluid when cut. Still I am unsure if this is opium poppy or not. Please help!

It does have similiar leaf margin though.. I could see how you would get it confused. I once knew a guy who thought he had a whole acre of poppies come up, which he DID sow seed there, and it was simply lactuca virosa.
