So I've been doing a bunch of weeding lately. The weeds are most definitely winning this battle, I assure you!
The main culprit in these parts is bindweed, but we also have our fair share of thistles, dandelions, spurge, mallow, pigweed, and a whole host of other invaders.
But, in recent years there has been a new one cropping up in the garden, xeriscape and lawn that I can't seem to identify. But as I was pulling some today it dawned on me that the leaves look awfully familiar - like in a college sort of way. I realize this is kinda crazy, but it sort of looks like marijuana to me.
I realize this makes me a really shitty nouveau hippie, but I honestly don't know what a marijuana plant looks like. I looked online and well... I can't tell. I think there are different varieties, aren't there?
I mean, is it even possible? Can pot just start growing wild? And at what point does it stop being pot and just become hemp? I know there are some people on the block with medical grow licenses, and they do grow it outdoors... but it couldn't just escape and start growing all over the place could it?
Anyhow, I'm trying to decide if I should be worried about the ATF knocking on my door or something.
Here are some more shots for your viewing pleasure.
Anyhow, if there's anybody out there with more weed experience than I have (of either variety) I'd be grateful if you'd help me figure out what this stuff is.
