I read several years ago that Tasmania is a major supplier of legal opiate products, and this weekend I spotted first-hand some farms growing opium poppies.

Are there any tours of opium poppy farms or opium processing facilities available in Tasmania?

Tasmanian Alkaloids offers (or at least used to, I can't find up to date information) a "Beyond Farm Gate Tour".

I'd suggest contacting them or the Northern Midlands Women in Agriculture Discussion Group who ran the tour, as they may have contacts for such a tour.
