What are the odds?Quote:
Unfortunately such recognition can at times be soiled as it attracts forum trolls. These attention seeking trolls always make themselves known. Their lack of original contribution or intelligence is always evident and in most cases they can be found proclaiming forum guidelines while being the worst violators of forum rules.
I found a table online and printed it (which of course now I cannot find) that listed all the state's laws regarding requirement for Rx and refused to ship to those states.
Nonetheless, I now understand it is against the forum rules to offer them here, but I don't understand how it creates some broad swath of jeopardy for "the family". If someone chooses to do something unlawful, that is their choice.
Those are some pretty considerate words indeed for people you call family members and quite revealing.Quote:

While you were looking for laws to protect yourself here is one more law that should have caught your eye....
Punishment for Possession or Delivery of Drug Paraphernalia in Texas
A person commits an offense if the person knowingly or intentionally uses or possesses with intent to use drug paraphernalia. A person commits an offense if the person knowingly or intentionally delivers, possesses with intent to deliver, or manufactures with intent to deliver drug. An offense for possession of drug paraphernalia is a Class C misdemeanor an offense for delivery of drug paraphernalia is a Class A misdemeanor if the defendant has no paraphernalia convictions. There are numerous provisions that allow the state to enhance the punishment ranges for possession of drug paraphernalia and subsequent charges can greatly enhance the ranges of punishments.
Texas Gun Laws
A Texas resident, if not otherwise precluded by law, may purchase rifles and shotguns, ammunition, reloading components, or firearms accessories in contiguous states. It is unlawful to sell, rent, loan or give a handgun to any person if it is known that the person intends to use it unlawfully. It is unlawful to knowingly sell, rent, give or offer to sell, rent or give any firearm to a person under 18 years of age, without the written consent of his parent or guardian. It is unlawful to knowingly or recklessly sell any firearm or ammunition to any person who is intoxicated.
No state license is required to possess a rifle, shotgun or handgun.
There are restrictions on possession by a person:
Convicted of a felony or a Class A misdemeanor
Or subject to certain orders issued under the Family Code or Code of Criminal Procedure.
Selling items through Vapor4Life's site is strictly prohibited. There are swap threads for items Vapor4Life sells, but no classifieds section. Syringes are and have always been a very sticky subject. Where I live can't buy/own them without an rx. Some vendors do sell them, with sharpened needles, but they also include such messages as this (using this company as an example because they are part of the windy city vapers and got along great with everyone from Vapor4Life at vaporcon):
The Sale of Syringes and Hypodermic Needles 1. Regulations on the purchase of syringes and needles vary from state to state. It is the customer’s responsibility to know and comply with the laws governing the district in which they live.
2. The customer is certifying that he/she is 18 years old, or older, and that the syringes or needles being purchased are intended for lawful use.
3. The customer is certifying that the syringes or needles being purchased are not being used to introduce any controlled or illegal substance into the human body.
4. HotVapes, Ltd reserves the right to restrict or refuse sale to any person who may not be in compliance with our stated company policies on the sale and use of syringes and needles.
In other words they too do their best to safe guard the sales of syringes. It's the vendors discretion whether or not to sell them, obviously Vapor4Life has decided they won't, so they shouldn't be sold or traded on it's company owned forum. Having said that, closing this thread.
