A character in a low-budget film I'm producing needs an inhaler, it's just a prop so it doesn't even have to work, but I can't seem to find one on eBay (at least not one that looks like a normal inhaler). Where do I find one?

@MrIVI,
Place an ad on Craigslist or a Freecycle group request in your city.

@MrIVI,
Find someone who uses one for their asthma and ask them to save you one of their empties.

@tsarstepan,
For Craiglist, is it legal? I don't want to be requesting anything illegal.

@Butrflynet,
I don't think I know any asthmatics...
But usually they throw out the inhaler when it's done?

A pharmacy.

Will you write the script?

@MrIVI,
They dispose of it, yes.

Why would it be illegal? You're asking for a used (empty) and/or broken inhaler. I also don't believe they're controlled substances like morphine, vicodin, or other heavy duty pain medicine based prescription.

@MrIVI,
I believe -- but I'm not100 percent positive -- that an empty inhaler, containing no prescribed substance, can be purchased legally from any reg. phramacy.
