  • >>>> TO BAD –> SO SORRY –> that's NOT a vape shop! <<<<
    Vape shops are 100% Anti-Tobacco 100% Anti-Smoking!!! That's a SMOKE/HEAD SHOP cashing in on the popularity of vaping. We have the same "GREED PROBLEM" here where I live, and most of these shops WILL and DO sell to minors…. especially JUUL products!
