I am curious to know… If all manual Herb grinders are now considered drug paraphernalia than how is it possible that some herb grinder brands are registered in Amazon’s Brand registry?
Does Amazon allow drug paraphernalia in its catalog as long as it’s registered in brand registry?
I found quite a few of them…but take Santa Cruz Shredder for example: Amazon.com: Santa Cruz Shredder
How are they any different than any other manual herb grinder that’s been yanked by Amazon?
They are not! Marijuana is an herb and any grinder featured in the “Herb & Spice Mills” category can shred it. A herb is a herb. If someone needs a herb grinder, this is what they purchase! it should be the customer to decide what kind of herb they like to grind.
Unless a listing makes specific references to marijuana or any other “illegal drug”, I think Amazon is making a big mistake yanking it.
besides that point, I think Amazon yanking manual herb grinders and labeling them as Drug Paraphernalia is a slap in the face to all their adult customers, especially any Amazon customer in the USA who consumes marijuana or Hemp legally, some of which have real physical disabilities and a hard time visiting the local smoke shop.
This action sends out a message that Amazon looks down upon these people does not value their business.
what year are we living in? and what country are we living in??
Fun Fact: “55 million US citizens are cannabis users” - (Fit Small Business, 2019).
I believe this action by Amazon is unfair to the buyers or the sellers as it is very extreme and unwarranted, Amazon should revaluate and reconsider.
