There is a farm on my way to town that never, I mean never mows their hay until the end of July when it is completely brown, then it is mowed and left for a week. Well this year, it was cut in the end of April then nuked-not sure if it was Gramoxone or Gly but it was dead for a while. Now it is solid johnson grass with patches of sorghum showing here and there. It will be enough seed to set the county up for a long time. They will probably bale it after it starts dropping seed and sell the bales to unsuspecting folks. Argh! We have land use taxation program here which is supposed to require you to control noxious weeds but no enforcement. Makes it really hard on those folks like myself that work hard to maintain high quality fields. ok, rant over but I don't feel any better and I have to drive by that cluster several times a week.
What a Cluster!

I’m passing my disdain for weeds on to my kids. My 5 year old son can now identify quite a few varieties and they seem to bug him as much as they do me!

Perhaps a different route to town might save you some high blood pressure meds. BTW, you don't have a monopoly on that type of folks.

RU resistant marestail has exploded here in the last two years or so. We’ve always had the weed but I don’t remember it having resistance before. Luckily grazon or weedmaster does it in.

It’s a field down here right by the road that is solid JG and they bale it multiple times a year and leave the bales in the field for months. Then they move then to the side under the trees and let them rot for years. I don’t get it.
Must be a Carolina thing broadriver. See the same thing here.
