How the DEA Scrubbed Thomas Jefferson's Monticello Poppy Garden from Public Memory
#2
Quote:Opium and opium poppy ignorance is augmented by widespread false beliefs, chief among them that it is extremely difficult for opium poppies to grow anywhere in the United States.


Hmmm,I've seen a few gardens that had a row of lush poppies planted.A "beautification technique"that any "green thumb" can perform quite easily.Cheers


Quote:Disinformation about poppies has been spread far and wide. Some of it is subtle, like when the New York Times talks about people growing "heroin poppies." Some misinformation is so bald-faced as to stun the listener into silence, as when a DEA agent tells a reporter that the process of getting opium from opium poppies is so complex and dangerous that "I don't even think a person with a Ph.D. could do it.

Yeah, it's pretty damn hard to use a knife.:burnout:
