  • Of the emerging e-cigs, Juuls have all the necessary elements to take over a large portion of the U.S. market share: They’re flavored, their batteries can be recharged in an hour and they fulfill the “cool factor”
  • Juul has effectively overtaken their rivals because their e-cig contains somewhere around twice the concentration of nicotine as other vape pens, so they pack an even more powerful nicotine punch
  • Nicotine has effects on young people’s cognitive development; if addicted to nicotine at a younger age, young people are more susceptible to other addictions later on in life, and it’s harder to quit nicotine
  • The convenience factor for the Juul “pen” makes it even more popular, as students often vape in school without detection, but they have no idea what they’re getting into in regard to addiction
