Both youth and adults claim vaping JUUL e-cigarettes caused their nicotine addiction and nicotine-related injuries. While JUUL marketed vaping/JUULing as a safer alternative to cigarette smoking, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC
) states vaping/JUULing is highly unsafe for people under 25. The aerosol released when vaping/JUULing contains a number of harmful chemicals that damage users’ lungs when inhaled. These chemicals include high levels of nicotine, dangerous flavorants, and cancer-causing chemicals. Nicotine in JUUL products can damage adolescent brain development, which continues into approximately the mid-20s. The toxic levels of nicotine can dramatically impact adolescents’ memory, learning ability, and attention span. Many filing lawsuits JUUL had no prior medical history of health problems caused by nicotine, but JUUL’s highly addictive JUUL pods drastically impacted users health and caused complications like seizures, strokes, and lung disease.
Claims state JUUL specifically designed their JUUL pods to induce quick nicotine addictions. JUUL e-cigarettes’ “JUUL pods”, the liquid cartridges inserted into the e-cigarette, contain highly concentrated levels of nicotine in JUUL- patented “nicotine salts”. While JUUL Labs claims the level of nicotine in one JUUL pod contains the nicotine equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes, because of their patented highly concentrated form, the actual nicotine levels could equal the nicotine intake of smoking two packs of cigarettes. Many victims filing lawsuits against JUUL Labs even say that it only took vaping a single JUUL pod for them to become addicted to vaping because of the dangerously concentrated nicotine levels.
Lawsuits filed against JUUL manufacturers and sellers assert JUUL Labs failed to adequately warn users about the highly addictive nature of vaping JUULs. JUUL widely marketed JUUL products as being a safer option to cigarettes, but the high nicotine levels in JUUL pods indicate that they may not be a safer option: they might be worse in some cases.
Recently JUUL devices have been found to overheat and/or explode, causing injuries to users. JUUL devices are handheld, electronic machines that heat the liquid in JUUL pods and vaporize the flavored liquids for users to inhale. However, the rechargeable lithium-ion battery the devices run on have been found to overheat and explode, damaging users face, hands, etc. Sometimes the JUUL pods have been reported to shoot out with the speed of a bullet, injuring others around the device. Recorded e-cigarette explosions reach over 2,000, and lawsuits claim JUUL Labs failed to properly test and update the JUUL e-cigarette designs to prevent overheating and explosions from happening.
Since the introduction of JUUL vaping products into the market in 2015, the number of youth and teens vaping and using tobacco products has spiked exponentially. JUUL Labs' popularity and profit followed a similar rapid growth, with JUUL Labs, formerly Pax, becoming of the fastest startups to reach a $10 billion evaluation.
The root of JUUL’s success? JUUL Labs allegedly created a product that made it easy for users to easily get addicted, therefore maximizing JUUL’s profits. Claims also reveal JUUL marketed their e-cigarettes and pods in a way that not only downplayed the dangers of vaping JUUL products, but specifically targeted youth in their marketing campaigns.
