 1.  Opium for the Masses

Hogshire, Jim Paperback

Brand New 

Opium. Known as the Mother of All Analgesics, it's probably the greatest pain killer ever discovered. Opium is the parent of morphine, heroin, laudanum, Darvocet, Darvon, and many other pain relievers. Opium causes poets to rhapsodize and nations to go to war. Religion... is the opium of the people, said Karl Marx, but some people insist on the real thing. In Opium For The Masses, Jim Hogshire tells you everything you want to know about the beloved poppy and its amazing properties, including: l What does the opium high feel like? l How addictive is opium? How hard is it to kick? l The stunning similarities between opium and your body's natural endorphins. l What is the strongest drug in the world? l Morphine and its derivatives, both pharmaceutical and street. l How to grow opium poppies. l Where to get fertile poppy seeds. l How to harvest the opium from a crop of poppies. l How to make poppy tea. l Other ways of making and ingesting opium, including eating and smoking. l And much more. Jim Hogshire, author of Sell Yourself To Science, is an expert on the history of medicines. As he reveals the secrets of the seductive opium poppy, he tells the sad story of prescription drugs: doctors, drug makers and governments prohibiting natural remedies in favor of harsh synthetic derivatives. Opium For The Masses includes rare photographs and detailed illustrations that bring this magnificent plant to life. Don't miss this humorous, informative and practical guide to the most popular pain killer in the world.

 2.  Opium for the Masses: Harvesting Nature's Best Pain Medication

Hogshire, Jim Feral House 2009 Trade Paperback

Brand New 

Opium for the Masses was such a national phenomenon when first released in the early ‘90s that Michael Pollan wrote a cover story for Harper’s magazine about the book, in which he he expressed his amazement that a common plant, P. somniferum, or the opium poppy, grows wild in most states, and could be made into a drinkable tea that acts in ways similar to codeine or Vicodin. With Opium for the Masses as the guide, Americans can learn how to supplement their own medicine chest with natural pain medicine without costly and difficult trips to doctors hamstrung by pernicious laws to prescribe proper pain relief. This new edition features material on legal issues andfurther recipes, including how to make Laudanum and how heroin is created in the depths of of the Afghani poppy fields. Jim Hogshire is also the author of the award-winning book Pills-A-Go-Go. “Regarded as God’s own medicine,’ preparations of opium were as common in the Victorian medicine cabinet as aspirin is in ours. What Hogshire has done is to excavate this vernacular knowledge and then publish it to the world in how-to form, with recipes.” -Michael Pollan, Harper’s “It’s all in here, in masterful detail…” -Dean Latimer, High Times
