What is JUUL?

JUUL is a vape that is roughly the size of a USB flash drive. It hit the market in June 2015 and grew rapidly in popularity. By 2019, JUUL products made up two-thirds of the e-cigarette market in the U.S., primarily through the sale of its powerful 5% nicotine cartridges and sweet-flavored products that are particularly appealing to teenagers.

What is the Problem?

A growing number of lawsuits claim that Juul e-cigarettes are extremely addictive and dangerous, especially for young people. Even so, lawyers claim that Juul is designed and advertised to entice teenagers and spawn a new generation of nicotine-addicted kids.

First Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against JUUL

In October 2019, a grieving mother filed the first wrongful death lawsuit (PDF) against Juul Labs after her 18 year-old son died in his sleep after suffering from breathing complications.

She blames his death on lung problems that were “directly caused by his addiction to Juul e-cigarettes,” according to the complaint. He became “intensely addicted” to Juul when he was just 15 years old and had to be hospitalized three times for lung problems.

She also claims that he suffered from intense mood swings and would become enraged when he did not have access to his Juul e-cigarette.

The lawsuit was filed on October 15, 2019 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California — In RE: Vail. v. Juul Labs, Inc.Case No. 3:19-cv-06597.

FDA Slams JUUL for Advertising Vapes to Kids in Schools

In a September 2019 warning letter, the FDA slammed Juul Labs for falsely advertising vapes as “totally safe” and “99% safer than cigarettes.” Furthermore, a concerned mother reported that Juul representatives promoted their vapes to her kids in school without teachers in the room or parental consent.
