Recent studies have found Nicotine levels in e-cigarettes are generally much higher than that of a typical cigarette.

About JUUL Vaping Injury Lawsuit

Plaintiffs accuse Juul Labs of using the same tactics previously used by large cigarette
companies to target teenagers while knowingly about youth addiction to nicotine.
Plaintiffs allege that JUUL knew its e-cigs were not safe under any circumstance for non-smokers and posed a risk of unhealthy nicotine addiction for people already addicted to cigarettes.
Plaintiffs also allege that JUUL knew its nicotine solution delivers more nicotine into a person’s bloodstream than a traditional cigarette and does so more quickly than a cigarette.
The lawsuits allege JUUL Labs marketed to children through social media and email campaigns,
as well as with sweet fruity flavors reminiscent of candy or popular children snack foods.
