In addition to their work in the telecommunications industry, tiny bohpolis are well-known for their herbal expertise. Before the Trail of Tears, the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes would often send promising children to live with the bohpolis in the woods for a year before returning to act as herbalists and healers.

Modern bohpolis are at a disadvantage because invasive fair folk from Europe have largely forced them out of the woods, so they have largely turned to trading for raw herbs as well as growing their own. Simply put, this means that bohpolis grow the most potent and pricey marijuana in areas where they occur, and regularly trade it for goods and services. Even bohpolis that work as cable installer are known to keep some wacky tobaccy on hand for transactions–yet another reason that they are extremely careful drivers. It helps that bohpolis are completely immune to any of the effects of cannabinoids and have a long tradition of making their own clothes from hemp fibers.

The recent loosening of marijuana restrictions and an allowance in the trade of CBD oil has seen bohpolis establish many new dispensaries across the state, often in collaboration with the “big folk.” It has also given them an outlet for their other herbal products, from shampoos to poultices, and a source of income that is badly needed. On the other hand, though, rival producers see them as a major threat and have attempted to retaliate.
