Our House Rules

Drug Paraphernalia

Etsy prohibits listings for drug paraphernalia. We may suspend or revoke the selling privileges of members who list prohibited items in their shop.

Items that are considered drug paraphernalia on Etsy

Etsy defines drug paraphernalia as items that are intended to be used to consume or process narcotics.

We consider drug paraphernalia to include (but not necessarily be limited to) the following:

  • Bongs
  • Bubblers
  • Oil rigs, domes, dabbers, and dab kits
  • Pipes with a carburetor
  • Roach clips
  • Slides and/or items with a slide
  • Vaporizers   

Please note that the above list is subject to be updated by Etsy at any time.

Additionally, otherwise qualifying items may not be presented as drug paraphernalia. Presentation refers to a listing’s images, titles, descriptions, and tags.

My items are not restricted under my local laws. Does this mean that I can sell them on Etsy if I provide legal-use disclaimers?

Etsy’s policies may prohibit certain items that are legal to buy or sell in your area.

Items we consider to be drug paraphernalia are not allowed in the Etsy marketplace, regardless of these items’ regional legal statuses.

Every listing in your shop must still comply with all applicable laws and regulations. It is your responsibility as the seller to be informed as to which laws may apply to the sale of your items.
