What we know (and don't) about Juul, teen vaping and illness
Updated : September 26, 2019 11:16 AM IST
JUUL, that controls about 70 percent of the market, announced Wednesday that it will no longer run TV, print or digital advertisements for its e-cigarettes.
Juul, which rose to the top through viral marketing that promoted nicotine pods with dessert and fruit flavours, also said it's replacing its CEO and promised not to lobby against a proposed US ban on flavors.
Health officials have said vaping may be a less-deadly alternative for adult smokers who are trying to quit cigarettes, but they're worried about kids using the devices.
