A proposed ballot measure in Colorado seeks to make it the first state to regulate the sale of smartphones to children.

The measure, which still needs 300,000 signatures in order to appear on the ballot in 2018, would prohibit retailers from selling smartphones to customers under the age of 13.

The proposal calls for a written warning for first offenders, followed by fines in increasing increments for additional violations.

The measure is sponsored by a group called Parents Against Underage Smartphones. The organization is led by a Colorado doctor who believes that excessive use of smartphones causes children to become moody, withdrawn and isolated.

If a similar proposal was introduced here in Wyoming, would you favor banning smartphone sales to children?
