For your grandmother ...

Pretty busy right now ... please make your own opium at home while I get organized.

Quick Question: If it’s so easy to extract opium from poppies, why aren’t more people doing it? I think opium would be a hot item among college students, and they’d be willing to pay quite a lot for even low-grade stuff.

Here's the thing as I understand it: while raw opium does come straight out of a poppy just before it blloms, it isn't a tremendous amount. It's also hard to gather, from what I understand. And growing poppies in any kind of large amount is going to get noticed.

Heroin is more poular than opium for the same reason that cocaine is more popular than coca leaf tea: more bang for your smuggling space.
