Question

Is there a modern male dominion over plant medicine and healing? If so, at which moments across history can we acknowledge those shifts? Shifts in who holds the keys (the chance to accumulate knowledge and obtain/distribute medicine). Was it a violent snatch? A rape? Muhammad’s murders of Goddess worshipers and Acacia trees? The European witch trials and all the burnings? Or does it go back further than that? Is it more inherent within us—because we evolved from chimps, not bonobos? Is the current treatment of this knowledge in alignment with what plant intelligence might suggest or desire themselves? (Assuming plant ability to communicate and transmit information.) Is equality, or some middle way, in the practice/accessibility of these plants possible?
