Juul products are being sued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the
e-cigarettes and its juice being sold to young teenagers.
Federal law states that no e-cigarettes are to be sold to anyone under the age of 18. It has been told by a commissioner, Dr.Scott Gottlieb, that two million teens have been able to obtain an e-cigarette. The people of JUUL are doing everything they can in order to defend themselves. The JUUL company states they only sell online and that they require a social security number so that the age claimed is proven for the purchase of an e-cigarette.

“We cannot allow a whole new generation to become addicted to nicotine,” Gottlieb said.

History often repeats itself and this can now be considered the “modern” cigarette. It’s just a more “high tech” way to be addicted. Despite the juice having fewer toxins than cigarettes, it still contains a higher percentage of nicotine. People use products like Juul’s to prevent smoking tobacco, which could seem helpful, but it also contains a different part of addiction. Either way, the FDA is finding ways to shut down JUUL for its unhealthy product. They are willing to press civil or criminal charges for permitting bulk transfer through the JUUL website. The FDA has sent out forewarning letters to retailers, issuing a 131 fine ranging from $279 to $11,182.
They all have a total of 60 days to prevent sales to the youth or their markets will be thrown off the shelves.
