    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Amid increasing concern about vaping, a panel of Utah lawmakers on Wednesday approved a proposal to allow schools to destroy confiscated e-cigarette devices.

    The proposal is expected to be considered by the full Utah House of Representatives during the 2020 session before going to the state Senate.

    Nearly 10 percent of Utah students in sixth grade through high school, or about 30,000 kids, reported vaping over the last month, a higher number than those who reported using MJ, alcohol and prescription drugs, according to school survey data.

    more cherry picked data i bet.

    'Many teenagers think they are simply inhaling flavored water when they use e-cigarettes, not realizing the danger of nicotine addiction or lung illness, she said.'
    I can imagine the criteria used to make that :rolleyes: statement.

    Lots of crap in the article.
    I however have no problem with underage in possession of vape gear or tobacco, booze, etc being having it seized and trashed.
    I think they should also be fined.

    with the hardheaded youth no pain no learn.
