Where To Get A Poppy Plant Permit

Permit for poppy plants

Q: Where does one get a permit to grow poppy plants?

A: The laws governing growing the beautiful breadseed (aka opium) poppy, Papaver somniferum, are very vague. I am not a lawyer but my understanding is that gardeners do not need a permit or permission as long as they can show that they are growing the plant for its ornamental character.
