At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Adults and parents of youths who used Juul e-cigarettes.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys are filing lawsuits that allege JUUL Labs, Inc. encouraged smokers to switch to Juul based on false representations that the e-cigarettes are less addictive than regular cigarettes. The lawsuits are also alleging that the company used sweet flavors, bright colors, and youth-centered advertising to market Juul to teens instead of engaging in youth prevention efforts.
What Happened?
According to the lawsuits, many adults and youths who used Juul e-cigarettes are now facing the effects of addiction to nicotine, a carcinogen associated with “cardiovascular, reproductive, and immunosuppressive problems.” The lawsuits say vaping products like Juul can result in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and can affect neurological development in youths.
How Can a Lawsuit Help?
A lawsuit can help repay affected Juul users for the damages they’ve suffered, refund the money they’ve spent on Juul products, offer and pay for a way for users to kick their addiction, and force the company to change its marketing practices.
