Arizona Lawmakers Renew Effort To Regulate Vaping Products Like Tobacco

A group of Arizona lawmakers this week unveiled a new effort to regulate vaping products like tobacco products, among other provisions dealing with the vaping industry.

There were competing measures last year, including one backed by the industry; neither became law.

Amanda Wheeler, executive director of the Arizona Smoke Free Business Alliance, said regulating vaping products like tobacco products is the wrong approach.

Nevertheless, supporters are moving forward. Republican state Sen. Heather Carter is one of them, and she joined The Show to talk about the effort.
