E-Cigarettes

E-cigarettes, full name electronic cigarettes and also known as e-cigs, are battery-powered devices used to “vape” (inhale vapor of) nicotine instead of smoking it. Initially touted as a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes and used by some people to quit cigarette smoking, e-cigarettes came in flavors until early 2020, when all flavors except nicotine and menthol were banned in premade pods. Many e-cigarette pods contain more nicotine than traditional cigarettes. Nicotine is one of the most addictive substances there is.

E-Cigarette Safety Claims

In 2019, the FDA contacted at least one e-cigarette manufacturer—Juul, which was also the most popular brand with the largest market share—to warn them that their claim that e-cigarettes are safe may have violated the law, because the FDA never approved such a claim. Furthermore, use of e-cigarettes by teens and young adults has been increasing yearly in the U.S., and e-cigarette companies have been criticized for marketing that had been deemed aimed at youth. Acting FDA Commissioner Ned Sharpless, said, “Juul has ignored the law, and, very concerningly, has made some of these statements in school to our nation’s youth.” The government has since raised the age for purchasing e-cigarettes from 18 to 21 years old.

E-Cigarette Associated with Many Health Issues

New e-cigarette studies are being conducted and reported on frequently. In addition, e-cigarette users are experiencing serious physical and neurological issues, and many have become addicted to nicotine while using JUUL e-cigarettes. The manufacturers of these devices should be held accountable for the illnesses, pain, suffering, and damages they have caused.
