    A woman who was arrested after bringing CBD oil into Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom won't be facing charges, authorities said.

    Hester Jordan Burkhalter, 69, was arrested on a possession of hashish charge at the Orlando theme park back on April 15, according to an arrest report from the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

    The report said the oil was discovered when Burkhalter put her purse on a table for inspection. The oil tested positive for THC, the report said.

    Burkhalter, who the report said lives in Tennessee, was booked into jail and later released on bond.

    "This was a lawful arrest, as possession of CBD oil is currently a felony under Florida State Statute and Deputies are responsible for enforcing Florida law and Orange County ordinances," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

    But the state attorney's office decided to drop the charges, Burkhalter told NBC News.
