Actually, you don't really make opium from the field poppy. But even if you did, it is also responsible for alleviating the pain and suffering of millions. Seeing as it is still the best analgaesic we have to this day, I think the good it does outweighs the bad.
Glad to hear that Vera. My late parents had lots of Poppys on our farm. The were so beautiful. The are also the flower of the disabled vets (I believe) of which my dad was one.
