Demonstrators showed up outside juul’s New York headquarters this morning to call on city council to pass measures restricting flavored tobacco products.
City council member Mark Levine joined a group called “parents against vaping e-cigarettes” – or “pave” in front of juul’s New York City headquarters this morning.
Two teens joined the group and shared their experiences with nicotine addiction and explained why flavored tobacco products should be banned.
The company has been receiving serious backlash for its advertising and marketing strategies for almost a year now. Protest and public out cry have really been getting notable attention since Connecticut Attorney General William Tong and the state’s consumer protection commissioner, Michelle H. Seagull launched an investigative probe into whether juul illegally marketed itself as a “smoking cessation device” without approval from the US Food and Drug Administration.
