Ebay Weapons Policy Query-Listing Police Stick under Collectibles

We are new to selling on ebay. We grow various species of bamboo, including IRON BAMBOO- which we use for our craft works. Primarily, into wholesale, we have recently started selling on ebay (USA and Canada)

Recently, some of our listings were removed by ebay, on the pretext that it is against their weapons policy.

I browsed through Firearms/Weapons Policy at

https://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/firearms-weapons-knives.html (USA)

and

https://pages.ebay.ca/help/policies/firearms-weapons-knives.html (Canada)

I am still not sure why our handcrafted wooden sticks were removed, whereas I see so many offers of similar products on ebay ?

Smoking Pipes Ebay-Cross Border Shipments

My question to the forum concerns cross border shipments of Tobacco Smoking Pipes.

I wonder, if somebody can offer help/guidance with regards to labeling and packing of Tobacco Smoking Pipes, to facilitate a smooth pass through US Customs.

I had written to US Customs, seeking a clarification- I have received a perfunctory response, which, at best, is a mere formality, without any specific solution.

As per my information

The relevant statute, 21 U.S.C. Section 863 provides

(a) In general It is unlawful for any person—
(1) to sell or offer for sale drug paraphernalia;
(2) to use the mails or any other facility of interstate commerce to transport drug paraphernalia; or
(3) to import or export drug paraphernalia.

Whereas, 21 U.S.C. Section 863(d) and 21 U.S.C. Section 863(e) try to define the term “drug paraphernalia”

THERE ARE EXEMPTIONS TO THE RULE VIDE 21 U.S.C. Section 863(f):

(1) any person authorized by local, State, or Federal law to manufacture, possess, or distribute such items; or

(2) any item that, in the normal lawful course of business, is imported, exported, transported, or sold through the mail or by any other means, and traditionally intended for use with tobacco products, including any pipe, paper, or accessory. (Emphasis added).

Since these items are being sold on amazon and ebay, does the above exemption apply – and if our labels indicate its intended/likely use to be “Smoking Tobacco” are we in the ambit of the law to dispatch these via courier to fulfill our ebay/amazon orders ?

Tobacco Smoking Pipes-Cross Border Trading

As an entrepreneur, associated with handicraft industry (wood, horn, metal and stone), one of our product lines that we wish to develop FOR OUR EBAY/AMAZON ONLINE MARKET PLACES is SMOKING PIPES.

I see whole lot of them being offered, sold/traded on ebay and amazon- yet I also hear about CROSS BORDER SHIPMENTS being impounded by US Customs.
