Please note that I am very much in favor of HB 112, which will help get
e-cigarettes out of the mouths of our children. We have seen a
dramatic--scary--number of adolescents in Weber County and around Utah,
pick these up. I recognize that some may use e-cigarettes to help stop
smoking or to respond to a craving in a place that doesn't allow tobacco.
These individuals don't need bubblegum flavor or the number of other
features focused on youth. HB 112 allows for those who may legitimately
need the product, but tries to protect those who might be harmed.

Please support this bill. Thank you.
