As vape panic roils, flurry of lawsuits against Juul has begun
Inhale vapor. Exhale cash.
The health risks around vaping are so unknown, and there is so much money in the pockets of e-cigarette makers like Juul lawyers are greasing up their hands for the reach-in.
Here are some e-cig lawsuits already filed:
A Kansas dude who says he goes through five pods a week.
A Connecticut man who says false advertising led him to start using Juuls, which he says cause him chest pain.
A New Jersey dad who bought Juuls for his 14-year-old son, who now coughs and vomits.
Dozens of lawsuits, all against Juul. Many of these lawsuits say that Juul’s happy, slick ads misled them into thinking Juuls were safe, when in fact they’ve lead to health problems.
The concequenses of vaping are unclear at this point, and it may be decades before we know actual long-term effects. Scientists are studying links between vaping and lung diesase, seizure and addiction.
