It's hard to control where weeds may grow but this kind of weed (yep, that kind) found in a traffic circle is one of those only-in-Vancouver sightings.

A healthy looking specimen has been observed by residents near Ontario Street and 20th Avenue. It can be seen growing in amongst other plants and flowering shrubs.

It appears to be healthy with its aroma noticeable.

"Someone's bound to throw seeds in one of these places," said nearby resident Eric Lamond, who smelled the plant and inspected buds that were hanging from it.

He says he's noticed other plants in similar traffic circles gardens in the area

"I love it," he said. "It's beautiful, it's a beautiful plant, we should all be enjoying it right? It's nature."

Last week, RCMP in Swift Current responded to calls about marijuana plants discovered in a city planter. They were destroyed.
