I need help identifying this plant

I bought this plant in May at a yard sale and it has grown from 4 inches to over 6 feet. It has Razor edged leaves and light mauve flowers similar to sweet peas.

And depending on where you are located, often considered a noxious weed/invasive species.

Thank you so much for the quick response, I will carefully remove it before I see a lot of seed pods.
