    The Utah House of Representatives voted NO on HB 372, which would have imposed an unnecessary tax on e-cigarette sales. CASAA would like to thank its members in Utah and nationwide for stepping up. Over 40 vapers attended the bill's committee hearing on March 6th, and the bill's sponsor, Representative Paul Ray, stated on the floor that the bill was generating a lot of e-mails in opposition.

    CASAA is launching our first fund-raiser to support an important scientific research project, described below, that will help clear up the the some of the debate about e-cigarettes.

    There have been numerous studies testing the chemistry of e-cigarette vapor and liquids, including the well-known report by the FDA, all of which have found no cause for serious concern. However, because most people are not scientific experts, the FDA and those who wish to see e-cigarettes banned have been able to untruthfully portray many of these studies as having found significant health risks.

    CASAA has secured the interest of an internationally respected professor of environmental and occupational health at a major university to study and write a review of all of the existing chemistry research on e-cigarettes. The results of this work will be made available to the public immediately upon completion and it will be published in one or more scientific journal articles.
