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:

Reference: @Papaver Setigerum DC Wild Poppy Seed – Somniferum Relative


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.

How do I decipher between Good Online Poppy Seed Retailers, and Bad ones?


My answer to How do I decipher between Good Online Poppy Seed Retailers, and Bad ones?

Answer by Jordan Woollen:

The best way to make sure that you're buying poppy seeds from the actual Source is to inspect and inquire about their Photos.

There's not ONE grower out there who could possibly give a good enough excuse as to why they don't have SEVERAL of their OWN, Original Pics of the Poppies they worked so hard to grow proudly. ESPECIALLY these days where anyone who has internet access, surely has a Cell Phone w/ a Camera on it at the VERY LEAST.

I have found several eBay and Amazon Sellers selling Seeds they prob. got off the Spice Rack, while using Pics of my Poppies in their Listings, illegally profiting from MY hard work.
