Sorry, the question brings back memories of the 70's, when you ran out and the question was, "Who has weed?" and the line that it was easier to get through bad times with a good jay.
I believe one of the sayings was, "weed will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no weed." Of course, I just heard this, no real practical experience

It was the fabulous furry freak brothers who coined that phrase.

I've noticed isolated plants around the island. Oh, and one of my patient's came in with a fireweed leaf covering a sore on his back. Said it draws out the pus.

I remember The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers and Fritz the Cat comics. There was a character name that escapes me "Mr. --------" Same comic group. 'Course, I'm pure as the driven snow, and never, EVER, touched weed (during working hours anyway), and wouldn't know anything about stuff like that from the '70's (or earlier). Maybe I should have been straight and my memory would be better.

But, I sure had a good time back then. Maui Wowee, Kona Gold, elephant weed, Thai stick (REALLY good stuff), buds with so much oil that they stuck together in the bag. And they ruined that Mexican crop with paraquat. Had a subscription to High Times and Rolling Stone. Who cared about National Geographic?

Got a couple of them starting to pop up around the house. Does seem to be a bit early. Drove up to the house from Anchorage and when I went past Cantwell, it was 30 degrees and there was "Termination Dust" on the peaks... Some friend had their gardens wiped out from the frost...

Not good...

we still have snow on the hills here; unusual for this time of year.
