A mysterious vaping-related lung disease has parents and doctors urging the country’s 3.6 million young users to quit the habit. However, many youngsters are finding that they are physically addicted and unable to quit. It is the same kind of youth addiction crisis the Food and Drug Administration has been warning of for several years. The FDA did, in fact, try to ban flavored fluids for e-cigarettes. And, if the ban had gone through, the teen-friendly, nicotine-based vaping liquids would have been removed from store shelves.
About Vaping Injury
JUUL electronic nicotine delivery pods contain a patented nicotine formulation, called JuulSalts. This formulation offers a higher concentration of nicotine in each JUUL pod. While e-cigarettes typically contain 6 to 30 milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of liquid, JUUL pods contain 59 milligrams per milliliter of fluid. Alarmingly, one JUUL pod contains about the same amount of nicotine as a whole pack of traditional cigarettes.
As far as vaping injury is concerned, e-cigarette users have a more significant likelihood of developing a lung tissue-damaging condition called popcorn lung (bronchiolitis obliterans). Nicotine dependence can lead to substantial adverse effects, including:
- Severe addiction
- Vascular disease
- Heart attack or cardiovascular problems
- Lung or respiratory failure
- Behavioral and mental health problems
- Nicotine poisoning
- Pregnancy complication or birth deformities
- Suicide attempts or suicidal thoughts
About Deceptive Advertising
Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine released the results of a study that analyzed the vaping liquid manufacturer JUUL Lab’s advertising from early 2015 through late 2018. The study found that JUUL’s marketing campaigns targeted children and teenagers by providing images of stylish and attractive twenty-something models in its print ads. The company also used packaging that mimics the colors of traditional cigarettes. Plus, they aggressively targeted teens on social media platforms, using hashtags, and created a blitz of consumer-directed emails.
Sadly, JUUL failed to warn consumers about the dangers of vaping injury! Furthermore, the company:
- Fraudulently concealed essential safety information about the amount of nicotine contained in or delivered by the electronically vaped liquids.
- Fraudulently marketed and sold its product as either non-addictive or less addictive than traditional cigarettes.
- Failed to disclose that nicotine salts are highly addictive in nature.
- Failed to reveal that its product is specifically designed to create and sustain addiction to nicotine.

The truth is being revealed, and the public is now discovering how JUUL and other e-cigarette manufacturers use misleading advertising and defective designs. E-cigarettes are deceptive and dangerous because they are designed to create and sustain addicted individuals. Indeed, JUUL pods contain and deliver substantially more nicotine than the company claims.
In truth, these underhanded e-cigarette manufacturers knew or should have known that children and adolescents would not understand the dangerous and addictive nature of their products. It is apparent that the sale of their product is likely more important to them than the health of America’s youth. You can do your part to prevent others from having to deal with vaping injury by filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer for its harm and deception.
