"The Happiest Place On Earth" Bans Marijuana

In light of the recent gains in marijuana legalization in the U.S., including Florida, which legalized medical marijuana in November 2016, Disney World is responding. The Florida theme park, including Magic Kingdom and Epcot, updated its park rules to add marijuana to the list of prohibited items. A Disney spokesperson said, “Although some states have legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational use, marijuana remains illegal under federal law… We are revising our rules to clarify that marijuana is not permitted on our property.” Although some marijuana advocates understand the park doesn’t want marijuana smoke, they argue that many marijuana patients consume in other ways, so they’re hopeful these rules may evolve.

It’s no secret that my husband and I are longtime cannabis and hemp advocates. We’ve cheered as the majority of Americans have come around to supporting legalization, and applauded as cannabis law reform spreads from state to state. Still, decades of prohibitionist propaganda have left many in the dark about the powerful wellness potential of these long-demonized plants.

Can we see some ID please?
