Call to Action: Tooele, Utah propossed e-cigarette use ban URGENT!

The Tooele City Council (Utah) is proposing an e-cigarette use ban at public parks, playgrounds and sporting areas.

Information given to a local reporter by the city Council and relayed to CASAA is that they have been told that exhaled vapor is harmful to bystanders. Smoking bans are enacted to protect the public from the harm of secondhand smoke, but e-cigarettes have not been shown to cause harm to bystanders. In fact, all evidence to date shows that the low health risks associated with e-cigarettes is comparable to other smokeless nicotine products. Banning use outdoors is not evidence-based government.

The proposed ban will be addressed tomorrow (Wednesday, August 7th) at the city council meeting and their work session, which are both open to the public. The Council meeting at is at 5:00 PM and the work session follows at 7:00 PM at 90 North Main, Tooele, Utah.

If you live in the area and can attend the meeting, please contact us at board@casaa.org

CASAA Regional Representative Aaron Frazier will be attending the meeting. If you would like to join him, he can be reached at afrazier5@utahvapers.com.
