Workshop Note

Gert mentioned Afyon is the Turkish word for Opium. Well here's a field of opium poppies between Aslantaş-Yılantaş Íren Yeri, and Afyon. The opium is used to make morphine for hospitals and strictly controlled by the Turkish government. I believe Tasmania in Australia also grows opium poppies for morphine, but again strictly controlled and monitored by the Tasmanian State government with probable audits by the Federal Government.
