Amerikans must be the healthiest people in history as they take an insane amount of medication.

Nearly half of our citizens (residents, whatever) are on at least one type of legal dope. Most of it is for nebulous pain, mental illness, and fat-related lifestyle choices.

But, even if you have a doctor’s note, be very careful at Disney:

Disney World may be the most magical place on Earth, but it turned into a legal nightmare for a great-grandmother with arthritis.

A 69-year-old woman was arrested at a Disney World checkpoint when an Orange County Deputy found CBD oil in her purse. She then spent 12 hours behind bars before being released on a $2,000 bond.

Hester Jordan Burkhalter, a great-grandmother from North Carolina, began using CBD oil for her arthritis after her doctor recommended it, Fox 35 in Orlando reported. She even had a note from the medical professional in her purse at the time of arrest, but it didn’t matter.

In my book, Disney is always a nightmare, best avoided entirely. Better avoid the cops too. In turn, the cops should probably avoid the peeps, given the rapid rise of medieval diseases.

The LAPD released the following statement Tuesday:

“The health, safety, and well-being of our Los Angeles Police Department officers is critical and we are ensuring the officers exposed to this disease are cared for. First responders throughout the region and especially here in Los Angeles are constantly responding to incidents that put them at risk of potential exposure to various diseases, and that’s why the Department takes this incident very seriously. All of the work areas that may have been exposed have been disinfected.”

Steve Gordon of the L.A. Police Protective League confirmed to CBSLA that it was a homeless transient who came into contact with officers at the station.

Gordon was blunt when asked about the problems officers face when dealing with the homeless population.

“Our officers are being put in very hazardous conditions, with the addiction to drugs, the homeless encampments, the feces, the needles, everything throughout these encampments,” said Gordon. “There’s only one thing that these cameras can’t catch and that is the smell and the vile conditions in which some of these addicted people live in.”

That’s the smell and condition of a society disintegrating.

And, all of this comes during, what we’re told night and day, are the best economic times in human history. There’s a sickness, more than one kind, out there.
