What is this weed? Pix included

I normally try to keep this one out of my yard because it makes me sneeze like crazy when I mow over it. But I noticed the larve of the black swallowtail all over it, so I left it. I'll try to relocate it to the back of the meadow in the fall so I don't have to come in contact with it.

What does it smell like if anything?

Yes, it's an strong, acrid smell.

Dill or fennel would be my guess.

No, not those, at least not like the photos of those I found online. It used to just grow in the bar ditch but it has moved to my backyard now.
