Why isn’t poison hemlock considered a noxious weed?

By Megan Moser

Q. Why isn’t the spread of the poison hemlock plant being controlled? It isn’t just a problem in the countryside, it’s also growing along Tuttle Creek Boulevard, and the Miller Ranch and Northview neighborhoods have stands of it. Poison hemlock spreads rapidly because it produces massive amounts of seed. Shouldn’t it be on the noxious weeds list?
