Generation Juul

Juul e-cigarettes are all the rage in high schools, college dorms and on social media. Their wild popularity has public health organizations taking the FDA the court for delaying regulations of the “lethal and addictive” substances.

In the mean time the devices, designed to help adults stop smoking, have become “a new kind of bad habit” for young people “that they have molded in their own image,” writes Jia Tolentino. A Wells Fargo analyst projected the American vape market will reach $5.5 billion this year, a 25% increase from 2017, as debate roils over whether they truly are a gateway to a lifetime of cigarette smoking.
