What is JUUL?
JUUL is electronic cigarette that first came on to the market in June 2015. JUUL delivery systems (known as pods) look similar to a USB flash drive and contain dangerously high amounts of nicotine. A single JUUL pod contains the same amount of nicotine as an entire pack of traditional cigarettes. In general, e-cigarettes contain a lower dose of nicotine, ranging from 6 to 30 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of liquid. JUUL contains a much higher concentration of nicotine: 59 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of liquid.
JUUL Marketed to Children and Young Adults
Over the past few years, e-cigarettes have become more appealing to young people. JUUL is particularly attractive because of its USB-shaped design as well as nicotine-solution flavorings like “Fruit Medley,” “Mango,” “Mint,” and “Creme.” These lawsuits allege that JUUL has targeted children and young adults by marketing these devices as a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes.
On September 9, 2019, the FDA issued a Warning Letter to JUUL for “market[ing] its products as modified risk tobacco products” without approval. The Warning Letter noted that JUUL has referred to its products, for example as “99% safe” than cigarettes, “much safer” than cigarettes, “totally safe,” and “a safer alternative than smoking cigarettes.” In its September 9, 2019 letter to JUUL, the Center for Tobacco Products wrote: “We are also concerned that parts of the “Make the Switch” campaign may also convey that switching to JUUL is a safer alternative to cigarettes, in that using JUUL products poses less risk or is less harmful than cigarettes.”
What type of side effects are individuals experiencing?
In addition to the danger of nicotine addiction and poisoning, there are a number of other serious health risks associated with the practice of vaping. These include: respiratory illnesses, myocardial infarctions, strokes.
