ORLANDO, Fla. — A great-grandmother from North Carolina was arrested in Disney World after authorities said they found CBD oil in her purse.

WLOS reported that the 69-year-old from Hickory was charged with possession of hashish and booked her in to jail, but the charges were later dropped.

The woman spent 12 hours in jail and was released on a $2,000 bail after the arrest on April 15, according to USA Today. CBD products are not legal in Florida.

“I have really bad arthritis in my legs, in my arms and in my shoulder,” she told WOFL. “I use (CBD oil) for the pain because it helps.”
