In Utah, E Cigs are banned the same as regular cigarettes...TECHNICALLY. In my experience, certain places just turn a blind eye (bowling alleys, theaters). Just be aware, it's technically illegal UNLESS YOU'RE IN A SMOKE SHOP.

NYDailyNews: "But should tokers treat these devices like cigarettes themselves, keeping the habit out of restaurants, bars, barbershops and airplanes? Or should they light up wherever the mood strikes, taking advantage of industry claims that the synthetic nicotine sticks are as harmless to passersby as nightclub fog machines?
Depends on who — and where — you ask."
Utah law states:
The prohibition against the use of an e-cigarette in a place of public access does not apply if:
(1) the use of the e-cigarette occurs in the place of public access that is a retail establishment that sells e-cigarettes and the use is for the purpose of:
(a) the retailer of an e-cigarette demonstrating to the purchaser of the e-cigarette how to use the e-cigarette; or
(b) the customer sampling a product sold by the retailer for use in an e-cigarette; and the retailer of e-cigarettes:
(i) has all required licenses for the possession and sale of e-cigarettes in a place of business;
(ii) does not permit a person under the age of 19 to enter any part of the premises of the retail establishment in which the e-cigarettes are sold; and
(iii) the sale of e-cigarettes and substances for use in e-cigarettes constitutes at least 75% of the establishment's gross sales.
(2) this section sunsets, in accordance with 63I-1-226, July 1, 2017.
