My answer to Is growing poppy legal in the US and Canada?

Answer by Jordan Woollen:

They may perhaps be a Wild Strain of Somniferum such as the Papaver Setigerum:

I know laws have changed in Canada lately, but for the USA, they are perfectly Legal to grow for us Gardeners who grow them for Seeds & Ornamental Purposes.
Not only are their Seeds legal to Buy & Sell Commercially, but the actual living Plants themselves can even be bought and sold for growing here in the USA.
Here's a Pic of one Sold from a Major U.S. Grocer:

Labeled "Papaver Somniferum" and all!!


In fact, I've seen LIVING, GREEN Opium Poppy PODS in WATER purchased at a Major Grocer here in the USA.
