As the use of e-cigarettes by teenagers has skyrocketed to “epidemic” proportions according to the Food and Drug Administration, a leading industry executive is expressing his regret. His contrition comes at a time when the makers of Juul, Vuse, Blu and Prologic and other vapers are facing legal challenges as more information is revealed about their products.
Juul Labs CEO Kevin Burns said in an interview that he would tell parents of vape-addicted young people that he’s sorry their children use his Juul e-cigarettes and those made by other companies. Unfortunately for many families, the damage has been done and some are seeking legal relief from the manufacturers. The litigation could shed light on many serious issues associated with teen use of e-cigarettes, including:
Many parents aren’t aware of the popularity of e-cigarettes or the harm that can result from vaping. If your son or daughter has become addicted to nicotine or suffered health consequences related to use of Juul or a different vaper, you might wish to explore your legal options.
