We’re at a loss... it looks sorta similar to giant hogweed, which is apparently super dangerous to handle...thoughts?

We saw the purple at the base, and the white hairs on the stem, the size of the stem, and a general leaf shape, and that's what gave us pause to do more investigation before I just grabbed it and pulled it up or went after it with the sawzall.I actually had to go look up what Hogweed was.
This one has no flowers, doesn't have white hairs and purple blotches on the trunk area.
The one I used to use is called LeafSnap. Just take a picture of the plant leaf and it'd pop up the plants that closely resemble that plant. It was pretty damn accurate last time I used it (many years ago).There's an app for this. It'll tell ya what it is if you take a picture of it. Can't think of the name, but it's like top 3 apps when you search for it.
