n. weedery: (1) a place where weeds are: grown, whether by design or by lazy gardeners.
(2) a place where marijuana is grown or sold.
Paul’s Amesome English Dictionary*
“Get thee to a weedery.”
– Hamlet’s thesis, Can Total Weed Acreage across America, 2019-2020 be Fully Modeled Using ARIMA Analysis. Written in partial fulfillment of his doctoral requirements in agricultural economics.
SPECIAL NOTE: There is a tiny park on a street corner near the Agricultural Economics campus of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. It started out as most weederies do; nobody cared enough to pull the weeds. Finally, people got serious. They formed discussion groups. It transpired that this minisule patch of weeds had an incredibly large variety of weeds. What’s more, many of these weeds were incredibly rare. Agricultural economists, who study the effect of weeds on the farming industry had an incredibly accessible source of rare weeds to study. Who says agricultural economics can’t be incredibly sexy?

Now show off your knowledge. Talk about weederies to the first person you meet today. They’ll think you’re smart.
