As per Oxford Dictionary - ”Weed is a herbaceous plant not valued for use or beauty, growing wild and rank, and regarded as cumbering the ground or hindering the growth of superior vegetation… Applied to a shrub or tree, especially to a large tree, on account of its abundance in a district… An unprofitable, troublesome, or noxious growth.”
And weed was first first used as a garden term or plant and not the weed that the hippie lifestyle use for getting ‘high’ reason.
