Florida police arrested a 69-year-old woman for carrying CBD oil at Disney World, even though she had a doctor’s note saying it was for her arthritis.
It was a rude awakening for great-grandmother Hester Jordan Burkhalter, who had planned her dream trip for at least two years, she told Orlando Fox affiliate WOFL.
Instead the North Carolina woman found herself locked up for 12 hours for “possession of hashish,” according to a website that tracks police records. Released on $2,000 bond, she was then cleared of the charges after the Orange County Sheriff’s Office dropped the charges.
“I have really bad arthritis in my legs, in my arms and in my shoulder,” Burkhalter told WOFL. “I use (CBD oil) for the pain because it helps.”
