(Scroll down for video) A lawmaker in Utah, is working on a new law that will allow sex addicts to sue the adult film industry for getting them addicted to watching adult videos.

Last year, Senator Todd Weiler sponsored a resolution that passed, which declared pornography a public health crisis.

Weiler blames the adult film producers for giving children and teenagers easy access to adult videos by posting them to the Internet.

Weiler wants sex addicts, especially those who became addicted at a young age, to be able to sue the industry for damages.

Weiler said that although at first people may be unsuccessful in winning their lawsuits, with time, it will be easier and it will become more popular to do so the same way people can now sue the cigarette industry.

“I’m trying to trace the same path that was taken against tobacco 70 years ago. It’s not government coming in and saying what you can and can’t watch. It’s just basically a message to the pornography industry that if someone in Utah can prove damages from their product, then they may be held liable financially.”
