Just about seven out of every ten e-cigarettes sold in the US are JUULs. Lawsuits claims that each pod is equivalent to smoking 20 regular cigarettes. At least one lawsuit claims pods offer more highly addictive nicotine than cigarettes. Individual lawsuits have been launched by several persons who allege that using the goods caused their nicotine addiction.
What Is The Reason For Class Action?
39 states have filed lawsuits against JUUL Labs for its role in fostering a vaping pandemic among young people. North Carolina’s lawsuit was the first of several, and the corporation agreed to pay $40 million to the county in June 2021. Lawsuits claim that Juul Labs Inc. marketed its products to minors and misrepresented facts concerning the nicotine level, addictive nature, and physiological impacts of Juul e-cigarettes.
One of the most common reasons for lawsuits is that consumers believe Juul does not provide enough information about the nicotine content of its devices; in fact, plaintiffs claim that Juul makes them more dependent on nicotine rather than helping them quit smoking.
The lawsuits also claim that the e-cigarette’s maker engaged in deceptive marketing that hide information about nicotine content and targeted teens through social networks. Some cite a specific need for expensive addiction treatment because of the e-cigarettes.
