Opium for the Masses was such a national phenomenon when first released in the early '90s that Michael Pollan wrote a cover story for Harper's magazine about the book, in which he he expressed his amazement that a common plant, P. somniferum, or the opium poppy, grows wild in most states, and could be made into a drinkable tea that acts in ways similar to codeine or Vicodin.
