E-CIGARETTES & JUUL LAWSUIT
This content has been written by a team of legal writers and reviewed by Terry Crouppen
In recent years, the use of JUUL e-cigarettes has gained popularity due to their sleek, compact designs and relative ease of use in school or work environments.
JUUL has specifically targeted younger generations with their marketing tactics, at one point releasing sweet flavors of vape liquid before the Food and Drug Administration pressured the company to pull these from the market. Further, JUUL has in the past gone into high schools and presented misleading information to students, claiming that the product is safe and almost FDA-approved, neither of which is true.
IS JUUL SAFE?
Widespread misinformation regarding the safety of these devices has led to a surge in use by those looking for a “safe” alternative to traditional cigarettes, particularly among younger generations. Despite these claims of safety, the chemical-laced aerosol inhaled by JUUL users has been linked to a number of significant health problems, including:
- heart attacks or heart problems
- lung or respiratory failure
- nicotine poisoning
- psychological issues
WHAT MAKES JUUL SO DANGEROUS?
The dangers of JUUL are twofold and relate to their high nicotine content and the unknown effects of inhaling the aerosols they produce. JUUL products typically contain between 3% and 5% nicotine, and an increasing number of users report experiencing severe dependence. Nicotine consumption can cause a number of harmful effects on the heart, hormones, and gastrointestinal system.
As of January 2020, the CDC has reported more than 2,500 cases of hospitalization directed related to e-cigarette, or vaping, product use–associated lung injury (EVALI), and 68 deaths have been confirmed. While the full extent of vaping-related lung injuries is not yet understood, the claims of safety made by JUUL are unfounded based on the current evidence.
