The nation’s largest manufacturer of vaping products has agreed to change how they promote their product in many states. In a settlement announced recently Juul Labs agreed to not use marketing that appeals to anyone under the age of 21. This specifically includes a ban on marketing or advertising material to anyone younger than 21 on any social media platform and forbids them to compensate social media “influencers” to promote their products.
Juul called the settlement “another step in our effort to reset our company” while continuing to insist that vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes. “We will continue to work with federal and state stakeholders to advance a fully regulated, science-based marketplace for vaping products” while insisting they have no plans leave the business.
The Attorney General of Arizona Mark Brnovich cited ads that feature “young, attractive women in suggesting or casual and fun poses” and also said the pods marketed by Juul dispense more nicotine than cigarettes but are designed to be less harsh, a tactic he said is designed to get young people addicted. The lawsuit came even after the FDA raised the age for the sale of vaping and other products to 21. The FDA also outlawed the sale of most flavors.
