My husband and I were on a California/Oregon coast driving trip in May 2012 and drove from the Mt. Shasta area through Weed, California. It was a tiny town with a view of the mountain. The name "Weed" was derived from one of the town's founders, I believe, but some people might poke fun at the name for other reasons. They even have a Weed Pharmacy...hmmmm.
We wanted souvenirs for some friends in Texas so we found a small roadside building called The Weed Store. They had all kinds of "Weed" items like t-shirts, coasters, stickers, etc. The salesman was full of local history and very nice. He even gave us a free full-sized 2012 wall calendar of beautiful Mt. Shasta photographs, which I look at often.
