E-cigarette manufacturer Juul pays $439 million for illegal sales to youth

Beachum L, McGinley L. Washington Post. Juul to pay $439 million in settlement over marketing to teens. 6 Sept. 2022, State of Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, who led the 2-year effort that included nearly three dozen US states, said, “Juul’s … advertising campaigns created a new generation of nicotine addicts…. They relentlessly marketed vaping products to underage youth, manipulated their chemical composition to be palatable to inexperienced users, employed an inadequate age verification process, and misled consumers about its products’ nicotine content and addictiveness.”
