After watching one of the traveling players (actors) deliver a moving speech, Hamlet berates himself for his inability to avenge his father's murder. If an actor can weep for a fictional character, why can't Hamlet get himself moving for his actual dad? (If you've ever cried over a movie romance while remaining stony-hearted during an actual fight, you know this feeling.)
My interest in Hogshire 8767 s drug journalism was mild and strictly literary as I 8767 ve mentioned, my own experiments with drugs were past, and never terribly ambitious to begin with. I 8767 d been too terrified ever to try hallucinogens, and my sole experience with opiates had accompanied some unpleasant dental work. I 8767 d grown some marijuana once in the early Eighties, when doing so was no big deal, legally speaking. But things are different now: growing a handful of marijuana plants today could cost me my freedom and my house.
So C. Z. Guest had been right after all, and Martha Stewart (and the state trooper) wrong: the cultivation of opium poppies, regardless of the purpose, is indeed a felony, no different in the eyes of the law than manufacturing angel dust or crack cocaine. It didn 8767 t matter one bit whether I slit the heads or otherwise harvested my poppies: I had already crossed the line I thought I could safely toe—had crossed it, in fact, back on that April afternoon when I planted my seeds. (What 8767 s more, I was vulnerable to the very charge that hadn 8767 t stuck to Hogshire—manufacturing!) I was, potentially at least, in deep, deep trouble.

The language of the statute was distressingly clear. Not only opium but 8775 opium poppy and poppy straw 8776 are defined as Schedule II controlled substances, right alongside PCP and cocaine. The prohibited poppy is defined as a 8775 plant of the species Papaver somniferum L., except the seed thereof, 8776 and poppy straw is defined as 8775 all parts, except the seeds, of the opium poppy, after mowing. 8776 In other words, dried poppies.
The Ghost isn't too happy about Gertrude's "damned but he tells Hamlet to keep her out of things anyway. Surprise! Hamlet can't seem to keep this promise, either. In fact, his obsession with Gertrude is so problematic that the Ghost returns in Act III, scene iv, to tell Hamlet to lay off his mom.
We begin to realize also that Ophelia is not as passive of a character as originally thought. She is obviously a tool for Shakespeare, but also for Hamlet and Polonius, as the plot thickens around her.
The Hogshires spent three harrowing days in jail before learning of the charges filed against them. Heidi was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance: the opium poppies. Jim was charged with 8775 possession of opium poppy, with intent to manufacture or distribute, 8776 an offense that, with the firearms enhancement, carries a ten-year sentence.
Last winter Hogshire 8767 s lively little paperback joined the works of Penelope Hobhouse (On Gardening), Gertrude Jekyll (Gardener 8767 s Testament), and Louise Beebe Wilder (Color in My Garden) on my bedside table. Winter is when the gardener reads and dreams and draws up schemes for the borders he will plant come spring, and the more I read about what the ancient Sumerians had called 8775 the flower of joy, 8776 the more intriguing the prospect of growing poppies in my garden became, aesthetically as well as pharmacologically. From Hogshire I drifted over to the more mainstream garden writers, many of whom wrote extravagantly of opium poppies—of their ephemeral outward beauty (for the blooms last but a day or two) and their dark inward mystery.
