There will be exception for members of the military
The legal age to buy cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and other tobacco products in Texas will be raised to 21 years old on September 1.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed SB 21 back in June, making Texas the 15th state to raise the age to buy tobacco products to 21.
There will be exception for members of the military. The age for military members to buy tobacco products will still be 18.

While e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco, they do have the addictive substance nicotine, and are marketed in a variety of flavors that critics say appeal to children and teens.
