Can anyone help me identify this weed? I live in Denver and these things are taking over areas of my yard/garden.
Hoping to identify so I can figure out how to get rid of. I don't want to use poison where thery are near my raspberries and blackberries. Thank you!

It reminds me of Wild Mint: Field Mint (Mentha canadensis) which is apparently found in Colorado: http://www.coloradoplants.org/...

It looks close to creeping bellflower, Campanula rapunculoides

Yes, it also looks a lot like Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)

I first though of Campanula - either rapunculoides or punctata. Interesting to see if it blooms.

Unless the ID plant looks different from the side, the leaf arrangement isn't right for lemon balm, which has opposite and decussate (opposite at right angles) leaf arrangement.

Leaf arrangement also disqualifies any mint.
