What does vaping in Texas mean to you?

As a Texas based company, it's our legal and moral obligation to follow any laws set forth by the State of Texas. As many of you may know, Texas recently passed legislation for vapor products with an effective date of October 1, 2015. The laws are primarily focused at limiting access to vapor products to anyone under the age of 18. There are several other topics included in the provisions, however, age restrictions seem to be the primary focus.

With your support, we can keep minors away from e-cigarettes and tobacco to build a better future for Texans of all ages.Glenn Hegar - Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts

Texas new laws for vaping productsTexas E-Cigarette Laws and it's Affect On Retailers and Consumers

The comptroller's office is beginning to send out informational packets to prepare businesses for the new laws that become effective October 1, 2015. Included in the informational packet are customer facing decals, posters, brochures, and guidance for shop owners and employees to better understand and comply with the laws. The documents included in the packet also outline why the shop must comply with the laws and the penalties associated with not doing so. Directly from the informational packet from the Comptroller of Public Accounts, we would like to note a few of the notable points regarding vapor products being sold in retail stores. The following information is not comprehensive, for more information or to view the entire document, please visit the Texas State Comptroller of Public Accounts digital PDF vapor products document.

Retailers and Employees

Texas law sets out stringent rules for buying and selling cigarettes, e-cigarettes and/or tobacco products at the retail level. Retail employees are subject to criminal prosecution for a Class C misdemeanor if with criminal negligence they sell cigarettes, e-cigarettes and/or tobacco products to a minor. Additionally, retailers can be fined up to $1,000 or have their cigarette or tobacco products permits suspended. Permits can be revoked if retailers commit multiple offenses. Violation of any of the following laws is a Class C misdemeanor.

  • Retailers and their employees cannot sell or give cigarettes, e-cigarettes or tobacco products or coupons for cigarettes, e-cigarettes or tobacco products to anyone under 18.
  • Free samples of cigarettes, e-cigarettes or tobacco products cannot be given to anyone under the age of 18.
  • In any business open to minors, cigarette, e-cigarette or tobacco vending machines cannot be placed in a manner that allows direct customer access.

Minors and Parents

  • Minors cannot buy, use or possess cigarettes, e-cigarettes or tobacco products. The only exceptions are that a minor may possess cigarettes, e-cigarettes or tobacco in the presence of an adult parent, guardian or spouse, or in the presence of an employer if possession of the product is required in the performance of his or her duties as an employee.
  • Minors who violate the cigarette, e-cigarette and the tobacco law can be fined up to $250 and required to attend a cigarette, e-cigarette and tobacco awareness program or participate in a cigarette, e-cigarette or tobacco-related community service. Parents of a minor convicted of a violation may be required to attend the cigarette, e-cigarette and tobacco awareness program with their child.
  • A minor’s drivers license can be suspended or denied if the minor is convicted of a violation of the cigarette, e-cigarette or tobacco law and does not attend a cigarette, e-cigarette or tobacco awareness program or perform a cigarette, e-cigarette or tobacco-related community service.

American Made E-Liquid

The Story Behind Our E-Liquid

We manufacture a very specialized line of USA E-Liquid that has been custom formulated to work flawlessly with your personal vaporizer. We source all of our ingredients from within the USA and pay very close attention to even the smallest details when choosing them. We care about our customers to the fullest extent and refuse to sell our customers any product that we wouldn't use ourselves. Our usa e-liquid is mixed with the highest level of accuracy using ASTM or NIST traceable measurement equipment to ensure both quality and consistency with our e-juices.

Texas Select Vapor is also a certified member of the American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association (AEMSA). Being a certified member of this association means more than just having a seal, it means a commitment to our customers and consumers nationwide. By following AEMSA standards, our manufacturing process follows strict guidelines for e-liquid manufacturing and focuses on many practices consistent with cGMP.

We feel that choosing USA e-liquid from the numerous vendors that are online can be a tricky process to say the least. The majority of our USA E-Liquid flavors are mixed in a base of 50% Propylene Glycol (USP) and 50% Glycerin (USP) to provide the best of both worlds in e-liquid wicking and vapor production. We also offer the ability to customize your e-liquid with us. If you feel that you have tried a flavor in the past that wasn't quite strong enough, no problem, you can add a flavor boost to help the flavor better come through and appeal more to your taste buds. E-Liquid or E-Juice flavors can be quite subjective and while we cannot guarantee that you will absolutely love a flavor the first time you try it, we can promise you that the highest level of accuracy and thought has been put into each and every e-liquid flavor that we offer.
