We, your constituents in the state of Utah, do hereby request that the ban on e-cigarette, and personal vaporizer use in public places, by consenting adults be repealed. We formally request that you, as Governor of the state, use your influence and power to convince the state Legislature to enact this repeal.
We believe that the ban was unfairly enacted without adequate representation from the constituents that would be affected by this ban.
We also believe this ban was based on premise that is contrary to the American law making process. The fact that the ban was based on absence of research and not actual research pointing to a health issue, makes this ban akin to a court judge pronouncing someone guilty based on the fact that there was no evidence to prove their innocence. This is not the American was of justice, nor is it the American way of lawmaking.
We do understand that there are issues relating to the sale of all nicotine products to minors and that these issues need to be addressed in a legal manner, however the current ban overreaches this goal and hinders the freedoms that your adult constituents enjoy and expect as citizens of this country and this state.
Thank you in advance for all assistance you can provide concerning this petition.

The Utah ban on E-Cigarette and Personal Vaporizer in public places is based upon on a premise that there is no research concerning the safety of these forms of nicotine replacements, therefore they should be restricted or banned. As stated in the petition, this is akin to you going before a judge and he pronounces you guilty, only because they had no evidence of your innocence.
Consenting adults should have the right to use nicotine, a legal stimulant drug, in any form that has not been proven as a detriment to the health of other. Vapor is NOT smoke and quickly dissipates and has not be proven to pose any health risk to others.
This Petition in no way promotes or condones the use of any nicotine product by minors, and the author of this petition agrees that no minor should use or have the availability to purchase nicotine products in any form.
