Hello. I think your best option is to hand pull and prune. Since the raspberries are edible using chemicals can be risky. You could try pruning the weeds and then hand pulling when the weeds have been cut down to a maneagable size. It could take a couple seasons (or more) to get everything removed. Your other option is to remove weeds and bushes and start over.
