any one else ever do this?

I have some seeds a friend gave me a while ago, but i also saw that they are pretty cheap to order online. anyone know anyone who has done that and if it is legal or not. is it like mushrooms where you can have the spores but not the mushrooms themselves?

from everything i've read, opium poppy is basically a weed and it will grow anywhere, but if anyone has advise for me i would like that.

i knew a guy who grew a windowbox of em in his apartment awhile back.... he said they grew pretty easily, if that helps. and yeah, you can legally possess the seeds but not the flowers.

I think the Controlled Substances Act prohibits the poppies themselves, and any extract thereof, but you can buy the seeds anywhere for cooking so obviously the law is a little lax there. If you were growing them inconspicuously (say, in a garden among other flowers) I really don't think a cop would even know.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.
