malformalady:

Raw opium oozing out of poppy seed pods. Opium is the dried latex obtained from the opium poppy. The traditional, labor-intensive, method of obtaining the latex is to score the immature seed pods by hand; the latex leaks out and dries to a sticky yellowish residue that is later scraped off, and dehydrated.
