Can I sell my deceased cat's new insulin & new needles?

We have brand-new, unused needles and a new, unopened Lantus insulin vial that we had bought for our cat, but our cat passed away late last month. We can't seem to figure out if it's legal to resell these prescription items. Is it?

They were bought from our local pharmacy in New Jersey, and we asked our vet (who happens to be across the river in NYC) but they said they cannot take them. Googling around leaves me confused about the legality of trying to resell them in NJ (for instance, via our apartment building's bulletin board). We could resort to donating them to an animal shelter, but the items were expensive enough that we first wanted to try to recoup some of the costs if we can.
