The 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey showed that more than 5 million youth, including middle school age students, reported using e-cigarettes in the past 30 days and nearly one million users daily. A majority of those current e-cigarette users reported using JUUL© as their brand of choice.
How does this affect me? No longer are high school students among those e-cigarette users, middle school students are now using. Do you have children between the ages of 12 – 18? This affects you. Not only can e-cigarettes create a nicotine addiction but they are also exposing themselves to other harmful substances that can damage their lungs at an early age.
Currently, the industry is being targeted to make changes in the way e-cigarettes are being marketed. The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act is requiring all e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems to apply for a premarket authorization before they can be legally marketed. While a few states have filed lawsuits against JUUL for misleading marketing targeting underage consumers, among other disclaimers not used, does the action lead to changes to the e-cigarette industry? Juul is taking action to change some of its business practices and marketing efforts. Is this enough?
Already being affected by the use of these e-cigarettes? Educating your children about the dangers of e-cigarettes may help and you become a part of the preventative measures to help lower the risk of lung diseases and nicotine addiction.
