More stuff I didn’t know:

Bermuda has a rich heritage of herbalism. In the 1600s and 1700’s, slaves and indentured servants organized rebellions against land overseers using noxious herbs. Plants were also used for healing. In early Bermuda, healing through the use of herbs was done in secrecy for fear of being accused of “conspiracy against church and crown.”
