Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for using JustAnswer.
As long as the product has a legitimate, legal use and as long as you have no specific knowledge that the product is being used by a particular buyer for an illegal purpose, there are no restrictions to selling or shipping merely because the
product has the potential to be used illegally.
Where a product, not illegal by its nature, could be used in an illegal manner, the product is only restricted if there is intent to sell/buy it for that purpose.
Thus, as long as you either know that it will be used legally or don't have any information that it will be used illegally, then you are o.k.
Please let me know what follow-up questions you have. If my above responses have been helpful, please click Accept so that I get credit for the time/effort. You may always restart the thread and ask follow-up questions at any time by clicking the “Reply” button at the bottom of the question/answer thread. You can access this thread later in your profile under the “My Questions” tab.
So, if my eBay add specifically says - Not Intended for growing an illegal substances - then I should be covered - correct?
Thanx for your help :-)
