JUUL Lawsuit Attorneys in Wichita
Tobacco cigarettes have drastically waned in popularity in recent decades due to their well-established health risks, so “Big Tobacco” looked for new, sneaky ways to hook the next generation on smoking. Enter, the e-cigarette, more commonly called a vape. JUUL, a popular USB-shaped vape, has been aggressively marketed toward children and young adults since it splashed on the scene in 2015. When JUUL was first brought to market, its creators said it was a way for cigarette smokers to taper off tobacco cigarettes, and it was purported to be a safer alternative, because vape contain tobacco, tar, or ash. However, vaping is not harmless. What many young people don’t know is that vapes such as JUUL contain the addictive chemical nicotine in high concentrations, and nicotine is extremely addictive and harmful to the adolescent brain.

As of August 2019, the CDC has received nearly 200 reports of severe lung disease linked to “JUULing” with patients ranging in age from 17 to 38. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started warning the public in 2019 that young adults are at risk for developing seizures from vape device usage, a potential side effect from nicotine use. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warn that JUUL vapes contain high nicotine levels, and one JUUL pod contains as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes. In August 2019, the first death potentially linked to vaping was reported by the CDC and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
In September 2019, the FDA issued a warning letter to JUUL for illegal marketing practices for falsely advertising their product as a safer alternative to cigarettes. The letter was prompted by FDA findings presented in Congressional hearings in July, which determined that JUUL manufacturers deceptively marketed their e-cigarettes. The fact that they advertised JUUL as a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes, which must first be validated by the FDA, subjects the company to harsh sanctions.
Nicotine is unsafe. It is particularly dangerous for kids, teens, and young adults, because:
- Nicotine can harm a young person’s brain, which continues to develop until about age 25, particularly in the areas of the brain controlling attention, learning, mood, and impulse control.
- Nicotine is toxic to a developing fetus, with potentially lifelong consequences. Babies exposed to nicotine in the womb are at risk for low birth weight, SIDS, asthma, decreased pulmonary function, respiratory illness, learning disabilities, behavior problems, and more.
- Nicotine found in vapes can lead to heart disease, chronic pulmonary obstructive disease, and other permanent damage.
