Lance Goldberg has his photo taken with Jeremiah Dreier dressed as Star Wars character Chewbacca at the Tampa Vaping and e-Cig Convention on Friday at the Tampa Convention Center. Dreier was passing out samples of an e-liquid called "Wookey Cookie," which tastes like graham cracker, cream and vanilla, said Lance Kimball, owner of the Vapor Hut. The convention continues through Saturday with 62 vendors and an appearance by the band Painkiller.
