What’d ya do, buy some poppy seeds looking for a cheap easy way to get high?!

Not poppy SEEDS, poppy PODS; read the text. Long article by Bill McKibben in
old Atlantic Monthly explains a lot of stuff about poppies and what you can do with them
and why, paradoxically, it’s legal to sell seed if you are a seed company but illegal to grow the seeds if you are a gardener. Whatever: yup, I’m doing a study on the subject, I find it interesting because opiates have enormous value as sedatives, but on the other
hand, someone I know made a poppy-pod tea after a traumatic experience and then had
horrendous visions and body sensations. I want to figure out whether the tea did it.

Let me figure this out and I’ll report back.

Depends on what you’d call a bad trip! From the “studies” I’ve done—er seen—the nice, sedative effects are rather short lived, but the skin itching, insomnia, and day-after constipation linger on…

Not really worth it in my opinion but interesting nonetheless…
