The FDA Is Cracking Down on ‘Juuling’ and Youth E-Cigarette Use
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Tuesday that it’s cracking down on the sale and marketing of e-cigarettes—such as Juuls—in hopes of combatting youth use of these popular products.

These sleek vapes, which are not legally available to minors, resemble flash drives, come in a wide array of flavors and contain as much nicotine per cartridge—which lasts about 200 puffs—as an entire pack of cigarettes. Juuling has infiltrated schools across the coun...
