The charges that were filed against a woman who was arrested for allegedly attempting to enter the Magic Kingdom with CBD oil have been dropped, according to WESH.

The guest, a 69 year-old woman from North Carolina, was arrested on April 15th, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit. The affidavit also claims that an off-duty deputy that was working at the Magic Kingdom at the time was notified by park security that potentially illegal drugs had been found in the possession of a guest. An employee said that he found oil labeled “Select CBD” in the woman’s purse when she went through security screening. When he asked her if it was CBD oil, she allegedly responded, “Is there a problem?” When pressed further, she refused to state if the bottle contained CBD oil, according to the affidavit. The deputy then tested the contents of the bottle using a drug testing kit, which produced a positive result for the presence of THC.

The woman was arrested and charged with possession of hashish and was removed from Disney property, but the charges were later dropped.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound found in hemp plants, and its cousin, marijuana. CBD contains small amounts of THC, the main active ingredient of marijuana, though it’s not commonly considered enough to get the average person high. CBD and hemp were recently taken off the federal government’s list of illegal drugs, though it is still illegal to buy or sell them in the state of Florida. The Florida Agriculture Comissioner, Nikki Fried, is currently pushing legislation that would make state and federal law the same in this instance, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Marijuana (including marijuana-enriched products), and all illegal substances are currently banned from the Walt Disney World Resort.

That poor woman. Instead of a vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth she got Nightmare at Disney.

If she was at The Happiest Place on Earth, she’d be in California and it probably wouldn’t have been an issue. As it is, she was at The Most Magical Place on Earth, in Florida. The “poor woman” should have been more aware of the laws regarding such substances and then not been so difficult when asked about them. She should have stated that it was CBD oil and what it was used for, not been obstinate and pushy, which is what led to the drug test being performed. As the article states, CBD oil cannot legally be bought or… Read more »

Disneyland doesn’t allow CBD or Marijuana on property either. They’ve been explicit about it in their rules since 2017.

While I agree it shouldn’t have been a big deal. She broke the law, and knowingly tried to hide that fact.
