Juul Will Pay to Settle False Advertising Claims

Settlements have been made with 45 states, while lawsuits are pending in the remaining five.

Juul has agreed to pay $462 million to six states, including New York and California, to settle claims that the company illegally marketed its e-cigarettes to minors. The company has still admitted no wrongdoing but has now made similar settlements with 45 states for a total of $1 billion. Lawsuits are still open for the remaining five states in the union. Juul has also paid out an additional $1.7 billion to settle thousands of similar lawsuits filed by individual consumers and local governments.

“Juul’s lies led to a nationwide public health crisis and put addictive products in the hands of minors who thought they were doing something harmless,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta added, “Today is another step forward in our fight to protect our kids from getting hooked on vaping and nicotine.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For state attorneys general as they seek to protect the health and well-being of minors and youth.
  • For federal, state, and local health officials as they work to prevent addiction and overdose among adolescents.
