Where do we get our opium?

A sample from a Finnish schoolbook from 1945 - a questionnaire for students. The highlightened question goes: "Where is opium obtained from?" (Or you can put it like in the subject header.) Other questions are quite, hmm, how should I say, normal and prestigious, like in "What does the word 'realistic' mean?"

Opium was a major ingredient of cough mixture in those times, as far as I can gather.
