FDA Crackdown On Juuls


The FDA has announced that they’ve given Juul Labs 60 days to prove that they can keep vaping devices away from minors.

The use of Juules has increased significantly over the past couple of years in teens, as has the disapproval of the use of Juuls from both WHHS administration and parents.

“It’s targeting young kids ages 12 through 17. It’s variety of flavors is enticing kids to use it, unaware that there are negative effects.” said by Detective Mark Dubois.

 Cigarette smoking itself kills 480,000 people per year in the United States alone, but e-cigarettes are fast becoming the choice of teenagers, according to The New York Times.

The Times went on to explain that while e-cigarettes have fewer toxic chemicals, they have higher levels of nicotine, which is highly addictive.

Several WHHS students offered up their reasons to explain the juuling’s popularity.  “Teens do it to be cool and fit in with everyone else.” said Tommy Graham, a Sophomore at WHHS.

Others, who wished to remain anonymous had stronger words.  “It’s stupid. It leads to smoking worse cigarettes and other drugs. It messes up lungs. If you’re participating in a sport, it’s not good for you, said one senior at WHHS.

“If you’re in a relationship, it can lead to arguments and break-ups,” added another senior.
