Policy update affecting Mylar bag listings


#1

Due to regulatory requirements, all Mylar bags that are not clear or single-colored must be removed from the Amazon store by August 5, 2022.

For more information on these requirements, go to Drugs & drug paraphernalia.

If you use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and have any remaining inventory of Mylar bags that are not clear or single-colored in Amazon fulfillment centers on or after August 5, 2022, these ASINs will be removed from the Amazon store. You must initiate a removal request within 30 days of receiving this notice to have your inventory sent to a location of your choice.

For more information on FBA inventory policies, go to FBA inventory.

Like these?

Can’t really find a reason for the ban, anyone have more insight?


#3

I think the ones you showed are fine. I don’t think they’re targeting those (although the bots might catch them).

I think they’re targeting these:

I’ve seen pictures in the past on the news of drugs that are manufactured to look like candy. Or gummys that have THC and other stuff in them. I think these bags are what you buy to package your candy-looking drugs in.

So does DoJ, based upon an examination of the available evidence collected by hundreds of its LE partners out in the field.


#5

Interesting… well it’s about time.

Unfortunate for consumers relying on supply of these for legal purposes… ahem.

Well, this ought to dent the logistics of many… “trappers” lol.

Thank you for protecting us from multicolor bags.

Products associated with drugs and controlled substances

  1. Mylar bags, which are not clear or single colored

Drugs & drug paraphernalia

What @Dogtamer said, apparently somebody realized that drug dealers sell dope in these sometimes.


#8

Once this colored bag supply situation under control, the powers that be can declare the war on drugs over. Mission accomplished. Really focusing on the root causes is the key.


#9

Yep this will force the drug dealers to buy stickers to put on their mylar bags. That will cut into their profit margins by 20 cents per bag. They are going to go bankrupt in no time what a genius strategy.


#10

No, there are small towns all over the U.S. that have a population under 100 people that desperately need a MRAP/Bearcat and full SWAT team gear. If the war is over, many departments will not get all their toys.


#12

@Amazon_News “regulatory requirements” Whos ? can you provide us with more details like who is requiring this and why ? Thank you .


#13

I think they are willing to go up to $5, maybe even hire artists to make exclusive limited runs. :rofl:


#15

I’m thinking that Amazon is using the “single-colored” term to strip out bags with drug-type lettering, names, or graphics. Just guessing. They just made the prohibition as wide as possible to give themselves the widest enforcement options possible. There are laws against selling drug paraphernalia and a bag with illicit drug images may violate them.

Just guessing.

Listing Hijacked, hijacked, hijacked, hijacked, hijacked, hijacked, hijacked, hijacked, hijacked.

“We’re going to implement policy to come down on mylar bags” :roll_eyes:


#17

Who scared Amazon? Why? I get that some part of the population uses the bags for their smell proofness.

But Amazon is still going to allow the sale of the bags as long as they are clear or one color. I do not care what is put in the bag. I do not partake. It may not be condoned by the federal government but may be legal in like 38 states.

You can soon only buy a clear bag or a bag in one of 10 million colors. But if someone wanted to sell a bag with the American Flag on it…banned.

Again, ignore what goes into the bag, the bag is still allowed to be sold. I would assume that it can still be promoted for all of the merits the bag provides.

I hope I see this on the news soon. I cannot sell my product with my logo or even the American Flag printed on it via Amazon.


#19

Yeah were in a much better place now, I agree.


#20

I need a more upscale dealer who uses fancy bags. My dealer puts paraphernalia in clear ziplock.

I do get some tea in mylar bags though.


#22

I concur. Regardless of whether or not sellers agree with these new “policies”, any “regulatory requirements” that are referenced within “US Announcements” should be specified and shared with the seller community rather than just a vague reference, yes?


#23

Looks like I’m way behind the times, but how are multi-color Mylar bags drug paraphernalia, but monochromatic ones not? Very curious.


#24

No, they say single-colored or transparent are fine.
