Disney World bans medical marijuana from Orlando parks

The “Happiest Place on Earth” just got stricter.

Disney World in central Florida has long banned items such as weapons, skateboards, drones and alcoholic beverages.

With the legalization of medical marijuana in Florida last year, Disney has taken action to clear a cloud of confusion surrounding the drug — by banning it at the premises.

“Although some states have legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational use, marijuana remains illegal under federal law,” a Disney spokesperson told WESH-TV. “We are revising our rules to clarify that marijuana is not permitted on our property.”

Matt Morgan, one of the attorneys who helped pass the amendment on election day, understands why Disney created the policy, but doesn’t want a person being disciplined for something that is now legal in the Sunshine State.

“To the extent that they’d go through someone’s personal belongings to search for that, I think that’s when the public might start having an issue with it,” Morgan said to the station. “All businesses are going to have to adapt and amend with society as this issue plays out.”
