To be clear, there are 2 kinds of poppy. One is the opium poppy (Papaveraceae somniferum L), which is banned in Canada and the US, and the other is a field poppy (Papaveraceae rhoeas L.), which is legal and not regulated in any way.
(Edit: Yes, there are actually somewhere around 70 varieties of poppy, but only 2 main ones for most purposes of discussion about legality etc)

I believe that’s a field poppy. Totally legal to grow anywhere....

This is the wrong poppy. This looks like a common poppy, which is 100% legal and extremely common. It's included in basically every wildflower seed blend and grows easily everywhere. Contains little to no alkaloids.
