Opium Poppies Aplenty
Now, I know they're not fundraising for Al Qiada, and that they not making opium or heroin, but it is pretty fun to pretend.
The world's supply of morphine and other opiates has to come from somewhere, but I would never have said, "I think that pharmacutical companies get the raw materials for morphine from North West Tasmania."
It just doesn't sound right. That and the fact that the only things that seem to guard them is a barbed wire fence and this sign. It did prevent us from making any illegal use of the crop, so who am I to judge.
I always imagined them to be more red and have more pins.
