Did you know that the Czech Republic is the number one producer of poppy seeds in the world? It’s also one of the best places in the world for drug users to get high.
Every August, while Europe’s bankers, lawyers, and other desk jockeys shut off their phones and head to the beach, the junkies of Prague set up camp in the poppy fields outside the city for a vacation of their own. For one glorious month, there are no cops to run from, no dealers to skirt—just acres of vermilion blooms and as much free opium as you can collect before nodding out.
In the video above, you’ll see a group of junkies demonstrate how they make their own heroin from opium poppies.
