There are several seed companies that sell them. I don’t want to cause them any harm by broadcasting their name. Just google poppy seeds!

You can have blooming poppies in your yard. You can purchase the seed, too. However, it’s illegal to have the dried pod. Which is really a kenundrum. You can’t have viable seeds unless the pod dries out. So, in other words, don’t get caught with the dried pod!

I tried to buy seeds or the plant but was denied. However, I wasn’t denied the purchase of 8 different varieties of Papaver somniferum (aka opium poppy)! Isn’t that hilarious.

I, too, suffer from chronic pain. I am so sick of hearing about all the heroin junkies getting started with opioid pain medication. The truth is, they started out by ABUSING opioid pain medication. They actually crushed and snorted the drugs right up their noses and now the CDC & DEA are coming down on our doctors. They are trying to lower the number of heroin junkies & all prohibition does is make more people sneak around. Now they are going to drive the legitimate chronic pain sufferers into the illicit life!
I am not going to commit suicide! I will simply turn my green thumb into my medicator. I always love having a summer garden. Poppies are beautiful! You can buy seeds every where. Go online. I just purchased several ounces for the garden. Just google poppies. Make certain to buy Papaver somniferum. Do not buy California poppies. Be sure to save some seed for the next year so you won’t have to buy it every year.
Also, with poppy seed tea, make sure your buying UNWASHED seeds because a kid made tea with 3-4 pounds of seed and it killed him. Now the DEA is after the major companies to wash the sh## out of the seeds. Just google unwashed seeds. Be careful, there is said to be as much as 500 mg in a couple pounds of seed. Good luck to everyone. I see lean times ahead.

Comment on 15 Ways to Eat Healthy, No Matter How Busy You Are by JessicaCanva http://naturalpapa.com/health/15-ways-to-eat-healthy-no-matter-how-busy-you-are/#comment-1322768 Tue, 14 Aug 2018 09:33:11 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=12615#comment-1322768 Thanks for your insight! Mindful living is about being aware of what we choose to put in our body. When we live a healthier lifestyle , we can downsize toxic products as much as we can by choosing to buy bamboo plates instead of plastic plates can benefit our health and our community. Packnwood offer the most unique combination of green and design disposables for retail and food service.

Comment on Opium Poppies: Homegrown Pain Medication by Johnnie Ash http://naturalpapa.com/health/opium-poppies-homegrown-pain-medication/#comment-1321287 Sun, 22 Jul 2018 22:22:39 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=2122#comment-1321287 I’ll start by saying I’m both a Christian minister, and a Conservative (real shocker lol). I’m also a chronic pain sufferer, and am uphalled at what our gov’t is doing to people who really do need relief. It is a shame and a disgrace that our rights to adequate pain management, and many others for that matter are, being infringed on the way they are. That is the very first line in the patients’ bill of rights, that I believe is basically attached to the Hippocratic oath, which all Dr.’s take before practicing medicine. I suppose some people don’t honor their oaths the way they should . It’s just so sad that so many of our lives are in these people’s hands. Then the govn’ t takes away our rights to treat ourselves, and tells us too see a Dr. Now the Dr.’s get squeezed by the DEA, the fda, and the good ole Centers For Disease control. They tell us there’s an “opioid epidemic” and those people they told us to go see for our own well-being, they’re now the villains, peddling drugs for the pharmaceutical companies. It’s making my head hurt trying to keep up with all their lies and hypocrisy. We as a people who are being oppressed in this way, should put our differences in politics,backgrounds, and skin colors to the side and join together as human beings concerned for each other and make our voices heard. Arguing and squabbling is a distraction “they” want us to engage in so “they” Can impose their will upon US!! It’s actually working pretty well for “them” so far isn’t it. We do need to get back to using what God gave us to use for healthier bodies, and stop letting gov’t bureaucrats steamroll us while we’re not paying attention. Sorry for the tirade. I’m just tired of being a pawn in some big wigs game that I don’t want to play anymore!! If you believe like I do, let’s work to become a force for good for humanity.

Comment on When a Child Dies: What Not to Say to a Parent by Dinah http://naturalpapa.com/parenting/after-the-loss-of-a-child-what-not-to-say-to-a-parent/#comment-1320829 Thu, 12 Jul 2018 17:08:55 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=5029#comment-1320829 I just lost my 29 year old daughter last month. I’m starting to miss her now because all the craziness has calmed down. What I don’t understand is that some of my close relatives haven’t even acknowledged her passing. Not an I’m sorry or how are you…nothing. I have learned that it is important to go to the funeral and to say comforting words to the grieving for someday you will loose a loved one and need the same thing. She is out of pain and in her Lords arms.

While it may not be an opioid in name it does activate opioid receptors in the brain and as such those receptors will eventually build tolerance. It’s not an opiate simply because it doesn’t come from p. Somniferum, it still has the same risk of tolerance, dependence and addiction. I fully support people having free access to this substance but they need to understand what they are dealing with.

I doff my hat to you and your work ethic. It’s great to see folk teaching children how to create wonders with their hands and learning skills that will last them a lifetime.

I highly agree with your stance on cheap tools, it’s something I try teach my readers to avoid on my blog http://www.tilersplace.com. A decent tool will get the job done and last you a long time, a cheap one will just end up as a regretful purchase that ruins the end result.

I am a single dad with two toddlers. So, I am having to do every role and every job since the kids are with me full time right now. It’s true that there are still families where dad works and Mom doesn’t. I’m not sure why people are upset at that. Being a mom is a hard, busy, and stressful job. I guess Kristen brought up a good point though that all people should know how to cook, do laundry, etc. I’m sure that you as a dad teach your kids that because when I cook, my kids want to help, and I let them! Great list though, thanks.

If you’re going to look like a total ass and judge someone and put them down, IE. NOT act like a man, perhaps you should try to sound more intelligent doing so and also make sure you can spell. It looks like you need to go back to elementary school and perhaps have someone teach you some manners which would include, if you’re not going to say something intelligent keep your mouth shut. The irony is you’re on this website and you’re acting like your parents failed you in that aspect. Keep working on being a better person, because this post shows otherwise.

Find myself struggling with the decision to quit army and be with family full time. My daughter is autistic and not alot of schools for children with special needs in south africa. So wife stays with children close to the school. Do i leave army and help raise them or just be the army dad who provides. I dont know.
