How is Opium Taken?Opium is usually smoked, but it is also eaten, mixed in a drink, sucked like a lozenge, and very rarely injected, because it is difficult to get in a liquid form.

ProductionFarmers go into Opium Poppy fields with knives, and slit seed pods open, so that the white latex inside pours out. In 1 day, it dries into a brown tar-like material. this is then either sold, dried further into a powder, or processed to make heroin, morphine, and many other -ine drugs.
