I think it's poke weed as well, really brings in Pokemons.

It does look a lot like swamp milkweed, I have some planted in my yard. It puts off significantly smaller pods than common milkweed.

LOL well thanks for bursting my bubble. I really don't want to let it grow where it is at anyways. But I was pretty stoked thinking I had an option for growing some myself.

Break a leaf off and see if it bleeds a milky substance. I'm sure your plant is not milkweed.

it doesn't bleed any thing. the center of the main stem has a white core but it doesn't bleed either.

Thanks Guys i'm gonna take a shot at potting some of the seeds I got. Not sure how much work it will be to get them to grow in this FL heat. Maybe i'll get a crop for the future. This specific plant just surprised me growing by the shop and i don't recognize it as a local, but i'm not super good at identifying stuff here anyways. i'm learning though.
