Yep, I reckon about that. I have those Blackberry bushes, Tree of Heaven (Chinese Sumac, Stink Tree), Wild Sarsaparill (The Common Smilax, Rough Bindweed, Prickly ivy, Mediterranean Smilax, Rough Smilax), and the famous American Pokeweed to name just few.
I want to leave American Pokeweed in some places of my garden, though. That plant deserves respect. The juce of berries of that plan was once used for ink production. The Declaration of Independance of the USA was written with the ink produced from berries of that weed ! That's why I would like to say - some weeds deserve respect !
