Hester Burkhalter (69) of North Carolina was arrested at Disney World in Orlando for having a small bottle of CBD oil in her purse. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabis extract and Burkhalter said her doctor told her to use it for her chronic arthritis pain. Now she is suing the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and Disney World.
From Wesh 2:
The lawsuit will allege Burkhalter endured “illegal detention, false arrest and a violation of her civil rights when she tried to enter Disney World with her family carrying a small bottle of CBD oil in her purse recommended by her doctor for chronic arthritis pain.”
“I have really bad arthritis in my legs, in my arms and in my shoulder,” Hester Jordan Burkhalter said to one local news outlet. “I use (CBD oil) for the pain because it helps.” https://t.co/jQNDy20aSY
