JUUL markets their products as a safer alternative to regular cigarettes, but they still contain nicotine. In fact, JUUL products contain significantly more nicotine than their leading competitors – and nicotine is an addictive and potentially seriously harmful substance. Nicotine can be harmful to anyone at any age, but it has been shown to be significantly more harmful to children and teens, and children and teens are also significantly more likely to become addicted to it. Juul did not do enough to warn users of these risks, and it may have even directly marketed to children and teens.
Smoking regular cigarettes has never been less common among teens and children, so for them, Juul usually isn’t a replacement for a dangerous habit. Rather, it’s a brand new hobby that they take up because it seems “cool,” and because it comes in flavors that appeal to them.
