Urgent! Poppy Pod Shortage
Like this post? Yes | No    

Hello all. I couldn't help but notice that there's a major shortage of poppy pods right now. Many vendors have raised their prices two or threefold over the last month, while others are completely out of stock. And none of them have any information about what's going on.

I heard on another forum that the DEA has issued an inspection of U.S. poppy crops to test for opium content. During that time, farms have been unable to ship any supplies, which explains the current shortage. The "hold" was supposed to last 30 days, and we're nearing the end of that time frame.

My question is, how much legitimacy is there to this rumor? If it's true, what is the likelihood that it will make it impossible to obtain dried poppies in the future? I don't mind paying higher prices, but am really scared that whatever's going on will seriously inhibit my ability to continue crafting.

Lastly, does anyone know of any independent poppy farms or vendors that don't obtain their supplies from one of the major sources? I'm a loyal, repeat customer who is basically looking for a reliable and forthcoming vendor.

Even if all the major U.S. farms get shut down? I know you can grow your own, but I'm referring to obtaining them from online vendors. Harsh DEA crackdowns could strongly discourage both farmers and vendors from dealing with poppies I would imagine.

(Forgive me if I'm missing something!)

Sorry to hear it. With as many pod users as there are, I'm shocked there hasn't been more of an outcry. I know I'M freaking out

On a side note herion prices remain the same... The DEA is doing a great job turning pod users into full blown herion junkies... Great job boys!

Guess they just couldn't stand people getting their fix from a natural, cheap, abundant source that Big Pharma (aka their sponsors) didn't patent and synthesize themselves. Fucking devils.
