Is it legal to sell my insulin syringes to a friend?

Asked about 1 year ago - Rome, NY

I changed my method of insulin intake to an insulin pump rather than vial/syringe injection. I have two extra boxes of syringes (100 needles each). My friend said he would pay me $40 for them, is it legal for me to take this deal?
