Actually, many of the poppyseeds used in baked goods are opium poppies. Opium poppies are papaver somniferum. There are dozens of hybrids of this strain under other names, and many of them are used in bakeries. But don't worry, they won't make you high. Lots of people grow opium poppies in their yards and have no idea, as they're sold in seed catalogues and are very pretty. They're one of my favorite flowers.
