I'm curious about the legal status of Papaver Somniferum (Opium Poppy) in Canada. I'm aware that making a drug from them is illegal, but what about growing them. Is it illegal just to have them in your garden?
Now before anyone links me to the page on Erowid, I've looked and it was a bit vague. There was no legality section for the poppies but it did mention "federal law" (which to me implies US law) in one small post about cultivation and manufacture. What it didn't mention was an actual law about the poppy itself, specifically for Canada. If anyone can help me with this I'd greatly appreciate it. Aside from any drug use, they really are a pretty flower.
