JUUL Lawsuits
At the time of writing this, Minnesota is the state that has filed the latest lawsuit against the company for ‘targeting youth’ in e-cig marketing according to the Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison.  The anti vaping lawsuit the Minnesota attorney general filed, alleges that the company illegally marketed flavored e-cigarettes to children and violated several CONSUMER laws, including fraud.
