What is PayPal's policy regarding transactions for narcotics, steroids and controlled substances?

PayPal prohibits all transactions for illegal drugs and any product that it determines may be a risk to consumer safety. To identify products that jeopardise consumer safety, PayPal reviews laws, regulations and other government actions, other available evidence, and marketing content related to the product. Some products may be regulated differently depending upon the jurisdiction of the user.

PayPal prohibits the following products regardless of the regulations in the account holder's jurisdiction: anabolic steroids, certain steroid precursors or hormones, Human Growth Hormone, Gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB), Rohypnol, and products containing ephedra.
