Describing Drugs or Drug-like Substances
If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.
eBay prohibits sellers from describing legal substances in a manner that suggests ingesting, inhaling, extracting or otherwise using any substance or compound from the legal substance will provide the same effect as illegal drugs, compounds or substances or that will provide unsubstantiated health benefits.
Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:
You are not permitted to list, sell or buy any drugs or psychotropic substances, narcotics or derivatives thereof including "drugs" and "Ayurvedic, Siddha or Unani drugs" as defined in the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940.
eBay urges its sellers and buyers to comply with all governmental laws and regulations. Since certain unsubstantiated promotional and marketing claims related to drugs and drug-like substances are prohibited by law and sales of these items may cause harm to eBay or its members, sellers may not market items with such claims on eBay.
