Can you imagine planning a trip with your grandchildren to Disney for two years, only to be banned at the doors? Well, that’s what happened to one great grandmother who had a not so magical experience.
Source: 69-year-old, Helen Burhalter of North Carolina who suffers from arthritis in her arms, legs and shoulders was recommended CBD oil by her prescribing local doctor.
CBD being a great solution for inflammation and pain, Helen was obviously ready for a walk in the park (literally) when Disney Parks officials greeted her and the family like any other guests – with a bag check.
You can just imagine what else this grandmother may have in her handbag:
Okay, I don’t know if she had tissues and bifocals for real – but yes to the CBD which in Florida State is still an illegal substance.
You won’t believe what happened next….
This poor great- grandmother with the little ones present got arrested and held for 12hours in jail before bail was posted.

STORY UP WALT!
What a ‘crackerjack employee of the year move’ to publicly shame and arrest a woman for her prescribed needs! This is where the States seem to be twisted but we can save that for another day…
As it stands, it is illegal to possess CBD in Florida State – however, the new Hemp Bill set to pass will eliminate this offence soon for future visitors to the Disney Theme Parks. Didn’t come soon enough for poor Helen who until then, had never even had a traffic violation on her record.
This will be a vacation memory no one will forget!
