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!
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 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.
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...

Join the Vape Revolution!Some might ask what exactly a vape revolution is. As you know, we vapers are always on guard against our government agencies and health departments doing everything they can to ban the very products that helped us break through the tobacco strangle hold. They would rather keep the deadly cigarettes freely available to satisfy THEIR addiction to the billions of dollars in tax money they make. Frankly we're all tired of it and we are no longer a small pocket of consumers like we were 3 years ago. We are now a force that cannot be stopped and we will fight back with every ounce of our being (or is it every mL of our liquid?)! The logo is symbolic of the fight that we vapers go through on a daily basis. Show your Utah Vapers pride by picking up a shirt and wearing it everywhere you go. If you are asked what a vape revolution is, tell them to hang out with the best vapers in the country, get involved and they'll understand who the Utah Vapers are and what a Vape Revolution is all about.
The shirts are available in limited quantities at the following locations. Once they're gone, they may not return so get in quick and pick yours up!

Vapor Craziness in Riverton or
