It's opening day for "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" at Disney World and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has a special gift to celebrate!

What highly advertised collectible has the TSA determined to ban from U.S air travel?

Why did it come to that conclusion?

What laws, rules, and regulations, permit the TSA to take such steps?

And how do Constitutional questions of Congressional authority play into the whole mess?

The Coke will be with you...always, in Virtual Legality.
