Subject: HB 112
Date: Sat Feb 22 01:49:50 MST 2014
I do support:
Licensing of retail and liquid manufacturers
Penalties associated with underage possession, selling to underage youth
No advertising an electronic cigarette product as a cigarette or tobacco product cessation device
Exemption from being taxed as a tobacco product.
I do not support:
Licensing of hardware manufacturing - Utah nor the health department require other consumer electronic manufacturers to be licensed in this manner.
Utah Dept of Health forcing non-Utah liquid manufacturers to align with Utah manufacturing standards. Health department does not do this for ANY other industry. Liquid recipes are considered intellectual property and we feel forcing manufacturers to possibly change recipes is a violation of the federal Copyright Act.
Utah Dept of Health forcing non-Utah liquid manufacturers to use specific ingredient quality. Health department does not do this for ANY other industry.
Online sales ban. The unavailability of brick & mortar locations throughout the state due of overly restrictive zoning regulations leaves online as the only option for 2/3 of the state. We believe this is a violation of the interstate commerce act as it is not currently a federally age restricted product. This would also create a prohibition for all residents in rural Utah with no access to B&M shops.
