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.
Fund Raising Drive
Over the last several months, the Utah Vapers has had extensive cost outlay as a result of the legislative session. While the money was well spent and we achieved the outcome we needed, it has nearly emptied our coffers. I want to point out that I do not pay myself for the services I provide or the time I give to the Utah vaping community beyond covering the expenditures. As we operate exclusively on cash donations from the general public and retailers, I need to start a fund drive to get us through the next 6 months. Click the image above for more details on how you can support the organization so we can help all the vapers throughout the state.

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...
