Is it possible to get high from tea made out of poppies ordered off of ebay (the kind used for floral arrangements)?

OK, first off, this is not a "can I do this" question - I have a friend who claimed this could be done and I remain incredulous but completely uneducated on the idea. I am curious as to whether it is *possible,* NOT the logistics of how one would do it.
Said friend said you order poppy pods off ebay from sellers who list them for making floral arrangements, so I checked and I at least know this part is possible (mind mildly blown). Said friend then described a process of smashing, dumping out seeds, grinding the rest in a coffee grinder, steeping, straining, then mixing with some other concoctions to ease the flavor.
I am curious whether this could actually produce the intended effect (getting high), and also whether this could be particularly dangerous for a person, i.e. could it cause an overdose, complications with other medications, etc..
