What are the guidelines?
eBay doesn't allow drug paraphernalia, or items designed or primarily intended for making, concealing, or using a controlled substance.
You can list some smoking accessories not intended for drug use. For guidelines, please refer to our tobacco and smoking accessories policy.
Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.

We urge our buyers and sellers to comply with all government regulations. Because the sale of drugs and drug paraphernalia is prohibited by law, regulated, or may cause harm to eBay or its members, we don't allow sellers to list them.
