JUUL® vaping devices splashed onto the market in 2015 with the stated mission of “improving the lives of the one billion adult smokers” on the planet. It claimed its primary mission was to help those already smoking traditional cigarettes and tobacco products to quit smoking.
Less than two years later, this latecomer to the already burgeoning vaping market had grown to become a $5-billion vaping empire. The San Francisco-based startup now controls more than three-quarters of the U.S. vaping market.
However, JUUL® acquired this lion’s share not by converting adult smokers, but by creating a new generation of nicotine addicts through shrewd and aggressive social media campaigns, a clever and easily disguisable product design, and other business strategies that targeted U.S. teens and children.
The FDA and Congress are investigating the company JUUL® in the youth nicotine epidemic. The FDA warns that vaping devices may cause serious health problems in young people.
If you are addicted or were ever addicted to the JUUL® vaping device or if you suffered any health problems after using a JUUL® vaping device, you could be eligible to file a JUUL® lawsuit.
