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 Personal Vaporizers (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!
Don’t forget to check out the Vendors page for the CERTIFIED Utah 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 Personal Vaporizers (electronic cigarettes), personal vaporizer accessory, e-liquid (even zero nicotine content) or tobacco product. This is the LAW and one that is enforced in all speciality vaping retail stores in the state.
Utah Call to Action
Generations 2014Utah Vapers director, Aaron Frazier will be presenting at the upcoming Generations 2014 conference for “Health and Mental Health Professionals dealing with the Critical Behavioral Health and Addiction Issues Confronting Today's Adult Generations”. It is an honor to be invited to present along side prestigious health professionals throughout the great state of Utah. Of course my workshop will be focused on the “Steamy topic: e-cigarettes - what you should know” and will be presenting along side Adam Bramwell, Marketing Manager & Media Liaison with the Utah Department of Health Tobacco Prevention & Control.
I’ve been preparing for this over the last few months and am excited at the opportunity to talk to medical professionals about the truth to help dispel the hyperbole and rhetoric that continues to be spread about our industry. I encourage all vapers in the state of Utah to pass this over to your medical doctors and suggest that they too attend to learn more what this product is and what it can do for their patients. For more information on the conference, please open the brochure.
Interview: Dr Joel Nitzkin, American Association of Public Health Physicians“They’ll [US Health Agencies] say well, you can’t sell the [e]cigarettes until you can show you have completed these studies to the satisfaction of the food and drug administration and if the studies are impossible to conduct you simply have the products banned. Period.” The effects of the ban would be devastating. Dr Nitzkin estimated that if every smoker changed to e-cigarettes the death toll caused by smoking related diseases would eventually fall from 400,000 to between 400-4000.

A fresh look at tobacco harm reduction: the case for the electronic cigarette
Smokers of any age can reap substantial health benefits by quitting. In fact, no other single public health effort is likely to achieve a benefit comparable to large-scale smoking cessation. Surveys document that most smokers would like to quit, and many have made repeated efforts to do so. However, conventional smoking cessation approaches require nicotine addicted smokers to abstain from tobacco and nicotine entirely. Many smokers are unable – or at least unwilling – to achieve this goal, and so they continue smoking in the face of impending adverse health consequences. In effect, the status quo in smoking cessation presents smokers with just two unpleasant alternatives: quit or suffer the harmful effects of continuing smoking. But, there is a third choice for smokers: tobacco harm reduction.
This ties in with work that the Utah Vapers did with FlavourArt in Italy from 2012 that highlights a smokers 'Right to Choose’. There IS a third choice...
