Weed is in Siskiyou County in the Shasta Cascades region of California, at the western foot of Mount Shasta.

Understand[edit]

Despite what you might think, the city's name has nothing to do with cannabis—instead, it comes from the founder of the local lumber mill and pioneer Abner Weed, who discovered that the area's strong winds were helpful in drying lumber. Weed was home to a thriving lumber industry from its founding in 1901 to as late as the 1980s. The historic industrial area at the northeast corner of town has been plagued with environmental concerns and clean-up efforts as a result of chemicals used for wood treatment and glue.

More recently, the wood-product-related industry has been scaled back, and Weed's economy has become more reliant on tourism, as well as light industry and manufacturing of bottled water.
