Teen e-cigarette use increased 78% last year. Juul wants us to believe they are helping solve the youth e-cigarette epidemic, when in fact, they created the problem. This week, along with our public health partners, we launched an ad campaign that shows how the enticing lure of sweet flavors hook kids on tobacco with their high levels of addictive nicotine.

Hello, just because you're the Almighty Lung Association doesn't mean I';ll swallow everything you say. There is no great importance to a generation that has never been exposed to nicotine, and there is some doubt that nicotine is that addictive even. www.israel21c.org/smoking-a-habit-not-an-addiction/?fbclid=IwAR0MFYoyGb9_qvnCXFwKlFQZ-vRq2ai5q4u5...

Thank you for tackling this important issue!

Rather kids be smoking ecigs with their fedoras than whacky tobaccy under the bleachers with their butterfly knives and pomade greased combs

Those flavors saved my life after every other cessation method failed for 30 YEARS of trying to quit. You seem to be ignoring the more than 480,000 adults who die annually in the US, from smoking-related disease in your misguided crusade against vaping. The reality is that vaping is the least harmful of all the things teens experiment with, after seeing adults do them, including drinking, drugs, distracted driving, unprotected sex and the list goes on and on, filled with things that harm and kill them. Interestingly enough, if you compare US teen use to the UK, you see UK teens have little or no interest in vaping, because UK public health promotes vaping, causing teens to look at it as something old people do to quit smoking, where here groups like you make it appear as a tasty, forbidden fruit, insuring they try it. YOU are the architects of the very thing you pretend to rail against and the American public is not quite as unintelligent as you might wish they were. You failed for decades to craft a solution to the single largest killer in the US and when the public bands together, creating their own amazing solution, you attempt to eliminate it. It is YOU who should be eliminated.
