poppy seed harvesting

I want to collect some poppy seeds but the heads are green and seeds all white inside. they are planted in a communal village and are removed before they turn brown. Can i do this ?

    You have to wait till the seed head is brown and if you shake it you should hear seeds rattling around inside it. I'm not sure if you cut a stem and leave it to dry out, if the seed will be ok to use.
