Rice is a major food crop in India. It is widely grown and consumed by the millions. Since the country is so highly dependent on opium, its commercial harvest is a major source of opium. The opium poppy's roots can grow over a thousand meters in height (over 500 feet above the ground) and are edible.

In India, the crop is generally grown in the rainy season around April and May as well as during the spring and fall months. It is usually harvested in mid-September. At the time of harvesting the crop will produce a small amount of the psychoactive plant called opium alkaloids or high yield opium. The seed is used to make capsules for use in medicine (in medicine, "dabs"). Once the high yield opium reaches harvest point, a very high quantity of these capsules is packed into large sacks and carried to the market to be sold at an inflated premium rate.

This opium is consumed by people in order to increase energy or to increase the pain. In the United States, the high yield opium will be sold with higher price tags, for use in the form of high priced cigarettes, liquor, or cough drops, rather than on street corners. In India, on occasion, the high yield opium used for medicine may also be used in industrial settings. Thus, the use of opium will result in increased profits for the opium poppy producers. The production of opium, especially in India, has increased substantially over the last decade. Opium cultivation has increased from 2,500 hectares in 2004 to over 35,000 hectares by 2011 (from 2,300 to 8,500 hectares in a year). In fact, the majority of opium poppies grown are opium poppy crop.

The name opium poppies comes from the ancient Greek word for "carp", "gudgeon" or "plover," meaning poppy seedlings. The name can be taken either from the Greek words "po- " (good) and "po" (poison), or from an Old French word "peppage," meaning a seed of the poppy plant that is kept in the spring in the ground to increase yield. The opium poppies are edible by people in order to increase energy or to enhance the pain
