Minnesota Files Lawsuit Against JUUL Over Rise In Youth Vaping


GOOD EVENING. ON THE HEELS OF
OUR KELOLAND NEWS SPECIAL REPORT
ON TEEN VAPING, ANOTHER STATE IS
SUING JUUL, THE E-CIGARETTE
MANUFACTURER.
MINNESOTA FILED A LAWSUIT TODAY.
KELOLAND'S DON JORGENSEN JOINS
US WITH MORE ON THE LAWSUIT AND
WHAT IT'S ALLEGING.
MINNESOTA IS ALLEGING THAT JUUL
HAS VIOLATED MULTIPLE STATE
CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS;
INCLUDING CONSUMER FRAUD AND
DECEPTIVE TRADE PRACTICES.
MINNESOTA GOV. TIM WALZ AND
ATTORNEY GENERAL KEITH ELLISON
HELD A NEWS CONFERENCE EARLIER
TODAY TO ANNOUNCE THE LAWSUIT
AGAINST JUUL.
"JUUL HAS STEPPED IN TO
CARRY-ON BIG TOBACCO'S TRADITION
OF DECEIVING CONSUMERS AND
PROFITING OFF OF IT. IN FACT
THEY'VE TAKEN IT TO A WHOLE NEW
LEVEL, AS A RESULT THE RISE IN
E-CIGARETTE USE AMONG YOUNG
PEOPLE IN A FEW SHORT YEARS HAS
ERASED THE PAST 10 YEARS OF
GAINS WE MADE IN FIGHTING YOUTH
TOBACCO," ATTORNEY GENERAL KEITH
ELLISON SAID.
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL CLAIMS JUUL
HAS ENGAGED IN TARGETING YOUTH
TO BUY THEIR PRODUCTS.
"THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY
WERE DOING, THEY STUDIED TO KNOW
EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE DOING,
THEY KNEW THE HARM THEY WERE
DOING AND THEY CONTINUED TO DO
IT FOR THAT SIMPLE REASON," WALZ
SAID.
STUDENTS SAY THEY FEEL PREYED
UPON.
"IT FEELS LIKE I'VE BEEN
DECEIVED LIKE THE PROGRESS I WAS
MAKING WASN'T PROGRESS AND
ANYONE WHO HAS QUIT ANY TOBACCO
PRODUCT KNOWS HOW INCREDIBLY
DIFFICULT IT IS AND THIS WAS A
BIG BACKWARD STEP FOR ME,"
THE SUIT ALSO ALLEGES JUUL
DEVELOPED PRODUCTS WITH MORE
POTENT DOSES OF NICOTINE THAN
CIGARETTES.
THE LAWSUIT COMES AMID A
NATIONWIDE VAPING ILLNESS
EPIDEMIC. AT LEAST THREE
MINNESOTANS HAVE DIED, AND
NEARLY 150 OTHERS SAY THEY'VE
GOTTEN SICK.
"BUT MY MESSAGE TO JUUL AS
THEY'RE LISTENING TODAY IS YOU
CAN HIRE YOUR ATTORNEYS, YOU
WILL HAVE YOUR DAY IN COURT, BUT
WE WILL BRING THE RIGHTEOUS
JUSTICE OF THE STATE OF
MINNESOTA DOWN ON JUUL."
FOR A CLOSER LOOK AT THE
LAWSUIT, WE'VE ATTACHED A LINK
TO THIS STORY UNDER KELOLAND.COM
WHERE YOU'LL ALSO FIND A LINK TO
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S WEBSITE
THAT HAS SLIDES THAT HE SAYS
SHOWS THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN
JUUL AND BIG TOBACCO
ADVERTISING.
THANK YOU DON. ALL 50 STATES
ARE NOW DEALING WITH THE
VAPING-RELATED LUNG ILLNESS.
ALASKA JUST REPORTED ITS FIRST
CASE.
NATIONWIDE... THE C-D-C SAYS THE
NUMBER OF CASES HAVE ROSE TO
2,290-CASES OF LUNG INJURY
LINKED TO VAPING.
COMING UP ON THIS WEEK'S INSIDE
KELOLAND, WE'RE RE-AIRING OUR
SPECIAL REPORT ON VAPING. HEAR
FROM STUDENTS AND
ADMINISTRATORS, ALONG WITH
DOCTORS AND A COUNSELOR. IT'S
