Humans and plants have an interwoven relationship extending far back into our history. Our bodies have evolved in constant conversation with plants, developing receptor sites for chemicals only the plants produce.

This guide focuses on care after experiencing police violence using plant medicines that are complementary to the protocols set forth by street medic networks. For basic first aid skills and in-the-street treatment please reference street medic publications and consider taking a Street Medic training near you.
