What is JUUL?
Juul – manufactured by Juul Labs – is the popular new USB-shaped smoking device that has recently captivated the e-cigarette market. Its sleek concealable shape and an array of flavors make it the favored choice for both adult and teen smokers. But contrary to Juul Labs’ claims that “Juuling” is a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes, recent studies have found that Juul and other e-cigarettes actually expose users to a number of dangerous health risks commonly associated with cigarettes. Researchers have also found links to risks not commonly associated with traditional cigarettes, such as e-cigarette users’ higher likelihood of developing bronchiolitis obliterans (more commonly referred to as “popcorn lung”).
With the continued rise in Juul’s popularity, paralleled by continued research illustrating Juul’s health risks, a Juul class action lawsuit is something Penn & Seaborn and from our Gilbert office partner is currently investigating.
If you use Juul or any other form of e-cigarettes, we urge you to read the following information as well as conduct your own research on Juul dangers before you continue using these products.
