"Kids are natural explorers," Malheiro said. "They (e-cigarettes) are pretty colors, they smell pretty. The more these (products) are in the home, the more kids are going to get into them. ...

Davis County focused on e-juice because state law prohibits local jurisdictions from regulating tobacco, and e-cigarettes qualify as tobacco products.
