To understand why our JUUL Lawyers are filing lawsuits against JUUL, maker of e-cigarettes, we want to give you a quick history of the product. JUUL is a brand of e-cigarettes that was introduced in 2015. Today, JUUL owns 75% of the e-cigarette or vaping market. In 2018, Altria, the parent company of PhillipMorris and manufacturer of Marlboro cigarettes, invested $12.8 billion in JUUL, offering retail placement next to its traditional cigarettes. JUUL employees received significant bonuses with the deal.
When it launched, JUUL paid social media influencers money to market its e-cigarette product on Instagram and Facebook. JUUL social media accounts were active until November 2018. JUUL vaping devices and vaping pods are designed to look like USB drives and charge via a USB drive. Because of this design, parents and educators don’t realize a teenager is juuling or vaping. It’s easily disguised because of the shape and lack of smoke vapors. Plus, JUUL marketed sweet flavors like fruit and candy that appeal to younger people. 43% of teens who tried JUUL said they did so because of its flavors.
JUUL pods contain high-levels of nicotine. However, until 2018, JUUL didn’t have the nicotine warning labels on its packaging. Only after the FDA made it a requirement, was the warning label added.
JUUL delivers nicotine salts to the user. Nicotine salt is a combination of nicotine with Benzoic Acid. Nicotine salts allow the user to take in more nicotine without the harsh effects. It’s smoother and more palatable, meaning users can vape much higher level of nicotine content than they can using traditional cigarettes. Studies are finding that vaping with JUUL products is more addictive than smoking. The nicotine salt is delivered by an aerosol, not a vapor. The aerosol can contain tiny chemical particles that are highly dangerous.
FDA Investigation Of JUUL

During this inspection, the establishment was in violation because you or your employee sold an e-liquid product to a minor and failed to check identification to verify purchaser’s age for a purchaser under the age of 27. This inspection revealed that the establishment sells, distributes, and/or advertises tobacco products, including e-liquid products, which requires that the establishment and its owners comply with federal laws and regulations governing such practices.
