Has "big tobacco" inserted its tentacles into Utah's political scene? A good effort to control a poison being made available to our children has been stymied. No one in our state legislature spoke against the bill to regulate e-cigarettes, but Deidre Henderson (Spanish Fork), Todd Weiler (Woods Cross) and Curt Bramble (Provo) somehow felt it necessary to give it "more study."

Their halting of the bill seems like Putin unilaterally knowing what's best for Crimea. How much "more study" and how much more addiction will it take, Senate Business and Labor Committee?
