E-cigarettes, when they first came on the market in 2007, were advertised as the "safer" alternative to regular cigarettes, and as a potential tool to help smokers quit. They aren’t made with tobacco, and they don’t involve a flame, so they don’t create the tar and other dangerous toxins and carcinogens that are produced by typical cigarettes. Instead, they are battery-operated devices that allow a new way to deliver nicotine to the consumer. Nicotine remains an addictive substance with its own set of potential health hazards, but rather than deliver it through tobacco, the e-cigarette delivers it in a solution that is heated and creates a nicotine-laden vapor the user then inhales.
The JUUL® is a small vaping device that is wildly popular among teens and young adults. Its small size and appealing USB shape make it easy to conceal, and filled with a nicotine-infused solution that gets vaporized for inhalation. These solutions come in flavors like "Mango" and "Strawberry Lemonade" that are appealing to children. According to the manufacturer, all JUUL® pods contain as much nicotine as a pack of 20 regular cigarettes. They have been proven to be more addictive than cigarettes and potentially more dangerous.
According to the FDA, the use of e-cigarettes by high school students increased by 20 percent just from 2017 to 2018. Due to a lot of aggressive marketing techniques that are aimed towards young generations and previous non-smokers, JUUL® and other e-cigarettes have become the number one choice for nicotine consumption. In just 4 years on the market, JUUL® has become so popular among young people that the company has captured over 70% of the e-cigarette market share, according to Bloomberg Businessweek. An estimated 3.6 million high school and middle school students are now vaping. In late 2018, the US Food and Drug Administration reported youth e-cigarette use has reached "epidemic proportions."
According to the Centers for Disease Control, nicotine use in adolescence can harm the parts of the brain that control attention, learning, mood, and impulse control. JUUL® and other e-cigarettes expose users to serious health risks including, but not limited to:
• Lung & Respiratory Problems
• Nicotine Addiction
• Nicotine Poisoning
• COPD/Advanced Asthma
• Heart Attacks
• Mental Health Issues
• Behavior Problems
The United States Surgeon General has concluded that e-cigarettes, including JUUL®, are not safe for anyone under the age of 26. Nicotine addiction can permanently damage the adolescent brain.
The number of e-cigarette lawsuits have been growing alongside rapidly increased e-cigarette use among teens and young people. Many e-cigarette lawsuits target JUUL Labs Inc., which accounts for about 75 percent of the e-cigarettes sold in the United States. Those lawsuits also name Altria-Philips Morris, the Big Tobacco company that makes Marlboro and other tobacco cigarettes. Altria purchased 35 percent of JUUL® in December 2018.
Parents of a 15-year-old Florida girl filed a lawsuit against JUUL Labs, Altria Group Inc. and Philip Morris USA Inc. in 2019 after the teen suffered seizures they blamed on nicotine ingestion from vaping. A man named Maxwell Berger also sued JUUL Labs in 2019 claiming his two-JUUL-pods-a-day habit led to his massive stroke before he turned 20. Vaping two of the pods would mean he was ingesting as much nicotine as someone who smoked 40 tobacco cigarettes a day.
