Teen Sues Juul Because She Didn't Know Their Pods Had Nicotine in Them

By

A teen is considering suing Juul because she was unaware that the vape pen's cartridges contained nicotine and blames them for becoming "reliant" on their product.

When I first hit a juul, I personally didn't know that it had nicotine in it. After pushing my lungs back down my throat and my coughing subsided, I asked, "what's in this?" and I looked at the back of the pod package: nicotine. It didn't take long for me to notice that these things were absolutely everywhere.

Gas stations, convenience stores, pharmacies, groceries, Wal-Mart, seriously, it seemed like wherever you went, Juul had become synoymous with vaping and the e-cigarette phenomenon.

But then the horror stories began coming out. Tales of "popcorn" lung, teens lungs collapsing, vaping-related deaths that caused a bunch of worried parents and politicians to call for the ban of these tobacco alternatives from shelves.

It's important to note that e-cigarettes and vapes were first created as a way to get people away from actual cigarettes. Turns out inhaling the embers of burning leaves rolled up into mass-produced filtered paper, with additives designed to make the entire process more enjoyable isn't exactly good for you. In fact, some 480,000 people a year die in the US alone from cigarette related fatalities due to a wide variety of health issues.
