On June 24, 2016, Utah amended HB415 to include language that would effectively ban all online e-liquid sales beginning July 1, 2016. With little more than a week to the deadline, it left customers, stores, and manufacturers caught off-guard as the law encompasses any and all sales that do not take place face-to-face.
An update posted by the Utah Smoke-Free Association explained that Representative Paul Ray is responsible for the last minute addition to the bill. His driving concern was to limit the access of minors to electronic cigarettes and figured this was the best way to do so.
