papaver somniferum//opium poppy ??? Mi. law ??
I got a lot of poppy seeds this year and now I came accross a magazine that points out that this kind of poppy is illegal in some states===anyone know about michigan law on this?????
This magazine is Gardening how-to ==page 52
Trouble with the law?
while it is perfectly legal to order and possess seeds of opium poppies, it may not be legal to grow them:Federal drug laws prohibit the possession of opium poppy plant parts other then seeds. These laws aim to prevent cultivation of opium for illegal narcotic use. While it seems obvious that gardeners grow these poppies for there lovely flowers reather than drug use,check policies with your local law enforcement agency before growing opium poppies.
I don't know where to start checking;-))))
