I agree

It's out of control in our state parks and other wild places, and it's taking over all of our lovely old-growth stands of woodland's edge wildflowers...very sad. Thumbs down

Garlic mustard, if that is what Frank's plant is, does smell very strongly of garlic and you can eat it. Although, clearly, not nearly enough people think it's worth eating, because it has been rampaging through woodlands in the eastern U.S. for a couple of decades now.
