    I don't know why people think sucking smoke into their lungs and then spewing it out for everybody to breath is "Cool".

    Have you even been behind a car at a light where the driver is vaping? I mean as soon as the car stops the window comes down and it's like the car just exploded in a cloud of smoke.

    I mean it has to have more particulates and bad chemicals in that smoke than you would get breathing the air on a bad air day in Utah, and people are up in arms and afraid to go outside on bad air days.

    Kinda comical to see people vaping at a "Clean Air NOW" protest. But it happens.

    If we should legislate one... should we not have any legislation for the other?

    Why isn't the Utah Government having a fit over this? Why aren't they protecting families?

    Where is Prop 3 for vaping?

    I am not a fan of e-cigarettes or any other type of public smoking for that matter. It's disgusting and the smell grosses me out.
    But what I hate worse than that is the government telling people what they can and can't do in their private lives.
