I don't know if I'll ever go on a cruise ship. The only part that really interest me is tasting a wide variety of food in a short amount of time.

Plus my anxiety about riding on a human petri dish would get the best of me and cause all kinds of embarrassment. Not to mention that there are hundreds of people around and having to move as a pack once you arrive for an excursion.
Gives me the shivers. Anyway, there is a recent news story about a person kicked off a ship because of CBD Gummies.
Those of an anxious nature need to know that you cannot travel on cruse ships that have a U.S. port with any form of marijuana or medicinal products derived from that substance.

Under U.S. federal law, it is still illegal. And federal law supersede your local state law. 
You can be fined.
You can be arrested.
Or worse, lose all that money you paid to cruise in the first place.
And that is just in a U.S. port. Don't even think about doing it oversees.  In this episode a heads up about not bring cannabis products on the ship.
