Welcome Utah Vapers!
This is the home for the vapers located in Utah and surrounding areas. On the site you will find topics relating to electronic cigarettes, tobacco harm reduction, we’ll share information from our vape meets and organize the fights against the Utah legislature each year when/if necessary - Oh and we try and have lots of fun while we’re at it!
The Utah Vapers get together every month for ‘Vape Meets’ where we can find room to pile in around 75 people. Check out the Vape Meet page for details on past and upcoming vape meets.
Don’t forget to check out the Vendors page for the trusted Utah based retailers along with preferred vendors located around the country including those whom have shown their generous support to the Utah vaping community. You can also find links to the most trusted vaping review and webcast sites around.
Utah laws require that you must be at least 19 years of age to purchase, possess, or be provided with any electronic cigarette, e-cigarette accessory, e-cigarette liquid (even zero nicotine content) or tobacco product. This is the LAW and one that is enforced in all e-cigarette speciality retail stores in the state.
Who are the Utah Vapers?The Utah Vapers is a Salt Lake City based consumer advocacy group with a focus on Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) through the use of electronic cigarettes and other smokeless tobacco products shown to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with smoking. We focus on the prevention of tobacco harm and seek to coexist with the Utah Health Agencies to function for the greater health of the Utah public. The Utah Vapers was formed in 2011 to provide support and education regarding alternative methods of THR after seeing many years of failed attempts by our public health agencies to reduce smoking rates in the region.
All of us smoked for many ￼years but failed at quitting through countless attempts following our doctors advice at using NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy), cold-turkey, hypnosis, and many other alternative methods. None of us expected electronic cigarettes to work but for each of us, it did with incredible results.
The Utah Vapers Association is a 100% volunteer organization comprised of consumers, retail vendors, manufacturers and supporters. We are not affiliated with ore receive any financial incentive from any retail operation or manufacturer. We are not affiliated with the tobacco companies nor the pharmaceutical companies. We are not paid lobbyists but we are each activists in our own way.
Since our humble beginning in 2011, we estimate we have helped Utah smokers avoid well over 2 million tobacco cigarettes. This equals to a combined addition of 42 YEARS to the lives of our member group. Imagine what we could do with unrestricted access to vape publicly and educate the smoking population of the state about the benefits of switching to vaping over smoking.
