Governor of Texas Greg Abbott while signing a Senate Bill 21 has increased the age to 21 from 18 to buy cigarettes, e-cigarettes or other tobacco products.
This would mean that anyone under the age of 21 years would not be eligible to buy the above stated.
The only exception that has come into the light is only the people who are military. The legislation would come into effect from 01-09-2019.
Penalty: Anyone caught breaking this new law will face a Class C misdemeanor and a fine of up to $500.
