JUUL has been the target of many recent, consumer-facing legal battles claiming that JUUL manufacturers have been deceptively marketing their nicotine-packed e-cigarettes to minors. With the increasing numbers of JUUL-related deaths and injuries, consumers are beginning to take a stand.
Taking on big names like JUUL isn’t an easy feat. And like solving most problems, the first step is coming forward. However, there are reasons some victims are hesitant to get involved with JUUL litigation.
Fear of striking out with JUUL litigation
For most people, seeking legal help is often the last resort. This fear is rooted in the idea that legal battles are a long, tedious and expensive process. Some people take a step back to avoid the expenses associated with getting legal help.
Fact or fiction about JUUL litigation
Common misconceptions about legal claims prevent a lot of people from pursuing justice. With our JUUL class action lawsuit, you won’t have to worry about a thing. Let us help you navigate the process of filing a claim while debunking these common myths.
Fear of expensive fees and painfully long processes

JUUL: harmful side effects and intentional youth targeting
Like many social movements, it takes a little bravery and a lot of confidence. There are more than enough reasons to join the thousands of people making their voice count. JUUL Labs produces a product that causes real harm and has chosen the youth marketplace to target. Here are just a few examples of how young people can be affected by JUUL, and deceptive advertising campaigns they employ:
JUUL takes advantage of its slim design and ease of use to make vaping discreet. Unlike other vape devices, no prior experience or complicated instructions are needed. There aren’t any buttons or settings to adjust – just inhale.
JUUL Labs has utilized brightly-colored ads, young models and fruity flavors to reach out directly to young people. Flavors like mango, creme, fruit and cucumber appeal to young smokers, especially the ones who have never smoked a traditional cigarette.
JUUL products contain a significantly higher dosage of nicotine and benzoic acid compared to traditional cigarettes. Research indicates that 1 JUUL pod is equal to 1 pack of cigarettes. While most e-cigarette brands contain 2.4 percent nicotine, JUUL contains 5 percent. Benzoic acid is a substance known for causing coughs, sore throat, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting, if exposure is constant. A typical amount of benzoic acid in e-cigarettes would be 0.2 to 2 mg/mL; JUUL contains 44.8 mg/mL.
While it’s easy to convince a smoker that vaping is the “healthier” option, a 2017 study found that non-smoking adults were four times more likely to start smoking traditional cigarettes after only 18 months of vaping, which includes “JUULing.”
Smoking at an early age reduces the activity in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This area is critical in influencing a person’s cognitive behavior and decision making while leading to increased sensitivity to other drugs and greater impulsivity. Along with brain function, it’s also proven to hinder lung development if started in adolescence.
