Is this a Cannabis plant?!!!

I've found this plant growing in our garden at a fast rate. In its early stages it looked similar to a Kerria that grow in the area but now I can see it is not. It looks rather like pictures I've seen of Cannabis plants. Can anyone confirm this from the attached photo please?

    Hemp....cannabis....same family. Better hide it before the neighbours want to share.

    Why sadly?

    Probably hemp. They often put the seed in bird seed mixtures and it grows from any scattering about.

    I used to be responsible for the bird feeders at the social services site where I worked ... one year we grew a fine crop of hemp around the bird feeders ... caused lots of amusement from various official visitors 😂

    It's a lovely architectural plant but sadly we can't use it to improve the look of the flower beds.

    Not far from me in Danbury they have fields of hemp.
    It looks the same as the real thing, but it doesn't have any of the magic ingredients - so I've been told...
