Police destroying illegal poppy cultivation at Gazole in Malda district on Feb 07, 2014. Opium (poppy tears, lachryma papaveris) is the dried latex obtained from the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum). Opium contains approximately 12% morphine, an alkaloid, which is frequently processed chemically to produce heroin for the illegal drug trade. Photo by Pankaj Ghosh/Indian Photo Agency (InPA)
