Opium growers of India

010293-013 Freshly lanced poppy pods oozing raw opium resin. The land of opium or black gold where acres of poppy fields produce tons of precious opium, all perfectly legal and strictly regulated by the government. Every year agricultural families licensed to grow poppy plant on one-tenth of a hectare of their small land holdings must harvest a minimum of 4.5 kilograms of opium paste yearly in exchange for the license to grow the crop. Every member of the family has a part each in the process of opium production. Photo: Pablo Bartholomew/Netphotograph.com
