    Yep.

    Back in the day when it was a popular ingredient in 'Patent medicines' and readily available. (Eg. One of the most well-known examples being Samuel Coleridge's 'Kubla Khan').

    Seems to have been one of the most popular drugs in literature, way back when.

    Opium den sounds much more elegant than crackhouse and meth lab:confused:

    my opium den is as bad as your standard crackhouse or meth lab. Maybe worse, given the...um. Nevermind

    to be fair, opium is still pretty popular

    The difference appears to be that no one's producing great literary works on it these days :confused:

    Chasing the dragon isn't a Cantonese I would recommend.

    My only goal is to finish a year as a better person than I started it
