Savannah Juul Lawsuit Attorneys
Representing Clients in Georgia & Across the United States
JUUL Labs, Inc., a popular and profitable electronic cigarette company, is currently facing intense legal backlash for marketing their nicotine products to teenagers. In 2015, the startup advertised their trendy “e-cigs” and flavored vape pods as a non-addictive smoking cessation tool. In reality, multiple studies have proven that electronic cigarettes function as a “gateway drug” to other addictions, including traditional cigarettes.
While JUUL Labs, Inc. claims it didn’t intentionally target teenagers and preteens, its marketing strategy and social media accounts visibly tell a different story. Early JUUL ads feature attractive young adults flirting and having fun while using the company’s flavorful vape products. This visual made vaping socially acceptable and “cool” to millions of impressionable teenagers across the country. The company also encouraged customers to post pictures of their JUUL products on their Instagram and Twitter accounts, two social media platforms that are extremely popular with teenagers. What the company failed to advertise is that a single “JUUL pod” has the same nicotine strength as an entire carton of cigarettes (about 200 puffs).

The Dangers of Vaping
The 2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey reports that over 2.1 million middle and high school students use e-cigarettes. Although the FDA has cracked down on e-cigarette companies and forced JUUL to abandon its social media accounts, there are countless young adults struggling with the consequences of nicotine addiction.
Using JUUL e-cigarettes, a nicotine-based product, can lead to the following medical conditions and more:
- Lung cancer
- Heart disease
- Increased risk of blood clots
- Esophageal cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Peptic ulcers
- Respiratory diseases
- Bladder cancer
- Muscular pain
- Increased risk of diabetes
- Cognitive deficits
- Anxiety and depression
Teenagers are regularly exposed to the Internet, retail, and television ads extolling the virtues of vaping and e-cigarettes. Before the FDA crackdown, JUUL Labs claimed that their products were made with minimal toxins. In truth, JUUL’s vape liquid contains high doses of nicotine, glycerin, and other carcinogenic chemicals. Because teens often use multiple pods in one sitting, they can unknowingly inhale unsafe levels of a chemical compound that is known to damage the lungs and throat. There are also reports that the flavoring chemicals in the liquid, diacetyl and acetyl propionyl, are extremely harmful when vaporized and can result in bronchiolitis obliterans, a rare and fatal lung condition.
In April 2019, a federal class action lawsuit was filed against JUUL Labs, Inc. and Altria Group, Inc. for violating federal racketeering laws and underplaying the health risks associated with their products. Unfortunately, e-cigarette cases embody an untested legal frontier with a small body of precedent. To secure a favorable case result, you’re going to need the services of an experienced, innovative, and resourceful legal representative.
