BREAKING NEWS: PARENTS AND THOSE IMPACTED BY JUUL® VAPING DEVICES ARE FILING LAWSUITS FOR COMPENSATION.
Children as young as 8 years old have been known to have experimented with vaping devices such as JUUL®. The FDA has sent multiple warning letters to brands such as JUUL® who tend to use children's candy and cereal as flavors to attract young smokers.
The dangers with JUUL® do not just end at its marketing to children. Reports have emerged of the popular smoking device exploding, which can lead to significant consequences for the end-user. This major default can largely be attributed to the poor build quality of the product itself.
November 2019 - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have stated that 1,604 cases of vaping lung injuries have been reported. The national vaping death toll has now reached 34. In response, the CDC and the FDA have urged consumers to avoid all vaping products.
The Truth Initiative® found that teens aged 15-17 are 16x more likely to use JUUL® compared to other age groups
The Risks of JUUL®
In recent years, JUUL® has come under scrutiny after being accused of purposefully targets minors and underage users in its marketing campaigns. Additionally, there are now over 1,800 cases of vaping-related lung illnesses that have been reported to the CDC as of November 2019.
Since coming onto the market in June 2015, use of JUULs® has exploded 7x by 2018. Now, experts estimate that JUUL controls well over two-thirds of the entire e-cigarette market.
Thousands of underage children and teens across America have become addicted to the device, which led to increasing concern from parents and government officials. Many parents allege that JUUL® purposefully targeted minors in its marketing campaigns through fruity flavors and ads containing models socializing around the dangerous vaping device.
