Juul should not be held responsible for the illegal purchase of the product by teenagers as they can not fully control who is buying online, but they should acknowledge that their marketing is a reason there is a teen demand for the product. Though their mission statement is to help stop adult smokers from smoking cigarettes with the Juul, it is clear to me by the packaging, advertising, flavors, and other marketing strategies at use that their target is younger people. I do not feel Juul can be held directly accountable for all illegal sales to teenagers as their official site only allows those under 21 to purchase, but because of their marketing to younger people, they are part of the reason so many illegal sales are happening.
No, the makers of Juul should not be held responsible for the illegal use of their product. There will always be illegal use of products with a age restriction. As the story states "customers nationwide having to provide proof of age before purchasing." This means that they do try to keep it out of young peoples hands but there is always a way kids can break the rules. So it would be unjust to put the fault on the Juul makers.

Juul's shouldn't be a responsible aspect for the makers because the teenagers can't get them without a adult. The makers of the juul are not doing anything wrong just doing business. Although the teenagers are in fault for using them because there not old enough to buy on themselves so a person of age has to be buying it for them.
support with evidence
The makers of the Juul should not be responsible for the teens using it illegally. The company has no control on how these underage teens are getting these Juuls. It says in the article "Juul labs says its mission is to get adult smokers to switch to a less harmful source of nicotine". They are not promoting these discrete vaporizers to anyone that is under 18, so they should no be held responsible if someone under the age of 18 has one and get hurt by the Juul. The people that should be responsible are the ones that bought the Juul for someone underage. People need to start realizing the affects that these Juuls have because they can cause a lot more problems in the future
strengthen vocab and vague pronouns
The makers of the Juul should not be held responsible for the teenagers who use their product illegally because there is an age restriction on how old you have to be to buy a Juul. That is the most they can do to prevent teens from getting their hands on a Juul. If a teenager wants something that they are not suppose to have until 18 or older, they will find someone 18 or older to buy it for them. Age restrictions are nothing when it is as easy as walking into a gas station and showing them your ID, which could be fake, and purchasing a Juul. The makers would have to discontinue their product to actually stop teens from getting their product, but they would rather make money than stop teens from getting their product.

Juul Labs should only be held accountable for a portion of the problem that is e-cigarettes usage by teens, as Juul is not forcing teens to use their product. This problem has been run through the dryer for decades, pushing the all the blame of substance abuse by teens on the companies. The abuser themselves made the decision to abuse, they may have had outside influences but that does not mean that it was the total fault of the influences alone.
The makers of Juul should not be held responsible for teenagers who illegally use their product because they do not sell to them. Although their initial launch was marketed towards teenagers by using youthful-looking models having fun, they do not sell to teenagers younger than 18. Ashley Gould, chief administrative officer of Juul Labs, also said that Juul Labs is now monitoring social media posts that target minors. Juul should not be held responsible because their product can also be sold illegally to minors from someone who is old enough to buy the product.
well supported, strengthen vocab
The makers of the JUUL products shouldn't be held accountable for underage use of their product because its not JUUL labs that is purchasing the products for the under aged users. Punishing them for the misuse of their product isn't really anything they can control due to the fact that many of these teens get the JUUL from asking an older person to make the purchase for them. JUULs aren't the only thing that teens use too, many drink alcohol and you don't see people up in arms against the major liquor companies. The issue really is up to the families to deal with it because a company cannot always control how their product is used its up to the consumer.

Makers of the Juul should not be held responsible due to the fact that they do not control who gets an electronic nicotine devices. The company itself cannot control who gets them no matter who they appeal to. A similar example to this is a weapons manufacture. They can not necessarily control what person receives a weapon; however, they have rules and precautions to take for a person to purchase one. The company should not be blamed for this, it should be the consumer. If the consumer does not follow the rules to obtain a Juul device, then there should, and is, consequences. In conclusion, the maker should not be held responsible for teenagers who illegally use the product.

The creators of the Juul should not be held responsible for who uses their product as it is not their cross to bear. Juuls are hardly any different than alcohol, cigarettes, or chewing tobacco, but when teenagers are caught with these illegal items, the companies who make them are not punished. The companies are simply there to create and sell a legal product to adults who would like to buy them. It is up to parents, stores, and the government to make sure that the youth are not able to get their hands on these items illegally. The company abides by all the necessary laws that go with selling similar items that are not made for teenagers, but people will still break the law if they want the item bad enough. This is why parents should be the ones to control their children, and the government should be the one who uses the law to wall off Juuls to those who shouldn't have them. The company has zero power in either of these departments, and so it'd be strange to expect them to take the weight of parents and the government failing to do their jobs.
The makers of the Juul shouldn't be held responsible to minors using their product because they went through the right measures to make sure nobody under 18 can legally purchase the Juul. Juul Labs has taken all the laws and respected them. According to the article, "....chief administrative officer of Juul Labs, said that youth usage of the product is "unacceptable"." Juul Labs has made some mistakes in their advertising on social media with "youthful-looking models" showing young followers that it is something fun when it is dangerous.
The makers of the juul cannot be held resopnsible for underage kids using their product. The problem is the same as so many other things. if an 18 year old kid gets cought with a case of beer, is the beer company responsible. My point is how would you go about keeping it out of the hands of minors. they cant physicaly be at every gas station in the country to make sure they check ids, or in every home to make sure that someones older sibling or 18 year old friend doesnt buy one for them. how do you punish someone for something out of their control. Many say that since they advertise using pictures of young people that they are targeting them as a group to sell to. Most dont even notice the age of people in ads anyways.
The makers of the Juul shouldn't be responsible for the illegal use of their product by teenagers because the company doesn't advertise to to teens under the legal age. The ones who should be held responsible would be the ones buying Juuls for teens under the legal age. The company doesn't want the device to be illegally used but teens want to try it because it's the new thing that everyone's doing.
This seems to ignore evidence in the article.
The makers of the Juul should take responsibility for teenagers illegally using their products because of the way they promote the product. Although Juul makers clam that they do not promote to younger people, Jidong Huang states in the article that "what they did with their marketing and promotion is not consistent with what they clam". Haung also says "Juul's marketing during its international launch- which included posts on social media of youthful-looking models having fun with the product- appealed to a younger demographic". This shows that the Juul appeals primarily to that of the younger people such as teenagers who use this product illegally.
work on paraphrasing vs. quoting is a short response
Makers of the Juul should be held responsible for illegal teenage use, because they post ads about young people using Juul's. When teenagers see these ads, they believe that they can be as cool as the person in the ad if they Juul. They need to be held responsible, because they purposely post ads on social media outlets such as Instagram. Instagram has a wide use by mostly young underage teenagers. Ben Tobin says, "posts of youthful-looking models having fun with the product - appealed to a younger demographic". Tobin explains that the posts on social media do make teenagers think that if they buy and use a Juul they will be cooler. I believe that Juul should be held responsible, because if they had not posted as many ads about young people using Juul, then teenagers would not use them as much as they do currently.
Holding makers of JUUL responsible for users lack of self control and unabiding the law seems absolutely impossible. Although this USB look alike has a very sleek and appealing design used to appeal to consumers. It is still not there fault that kids are choosing to use them. JUUL's original intent was for this less harmful source of nicotine to help cigarette addicted users switch to a much less toxic form of smoking. It makes it hard for JUUL Labs to fight lowering cigarette smoking when they choose to go out of there way to fix another problem of minors choosing to make bad decisions because of a lack of self control.
interesting pt of view, proofread
Juul Labs should be held responsible for teenagers illegally using their product because they are putting their advertising on social media and the ads on TV with young people using the Juul. Not many older people use social media so teenagers mostly are on it and they see these ads and they are wanting to use this product because they see it everywhere. They have flavors like mango and mint to make it an attractive product but adults might not care that much about the flavors a much as young people might. According to the article "13.2 percent of high school students reported using electronic vapor products, which includes e-cigarettes at least once in the 30 days before the survey." The mission of the Juul Labs is to get adult smokers to switch to something less harmful that a traditional cigarettes, becuase studies have shown to reduce users expose to those harmful toxicants and carcinogens.
don't forget a concluding sentence
The makers of Juul shouldn`t be responsible for underage teenagers illegally using their product. Juul labs created the Juul for people trying to quit smoking and as a less harmful source of nicotine. Experts try to target the flavors for attracting teenagers in when thats not the case. Underage users will always find a loop hole in the system to use these products and that all relys on that persons decion to do it. If a underaged teenager wants one of these types of products that person will find a way around it to obtain it.
add evidence from the text
I believe that the Juul company is not at fault here for underage users because the company is not making them, or focusing on them as the consumers. I say this because the market for Juuls is already so huge it really can't have complete control over their consumers. The article even states " In July, the company had more than 70 percent of all e-cigarette revenue." This means that most of all money earned by e-cigarettes is solely made by them. In addition to that, more underage kids are using Juuls but much less are smoking actual cigarettes. This can be at least a better alternative because the article states " There is "conclusive evidence" that substituting e-cigarettes for regular cigarettes "reduces users exposures to numerous toxicants and carcinogens."
try removing "I"
The makers of Juul should not be held responsible for teenagers who illegally use their product. Teenagers are old enough to be held responsible for the decisions they make. The company cannot control who buys their product, but they can help to try and prevent it. Studies show that only 13.2% of high school students are illegally using their product. The product is made for smokers to substitute Juuls for their traditional cigarettes. Jidong Huang a professor of health management and policy said "If they wanted the product to target adult smokers who want to quit, the should have promoted Juul in channels specifically to those groups". The company is actively working to detect illegal online sales to prevent teenagers from buying their product and using it illegally. They are targeting teenager websites, but they are not promoting to sell their product to them. They are mainly targeting young adults who are wanting to quit smoking and find a safer way to help their habit.
try replacing "they" with more specific nouns
The makers of Juul should not be responsible for the illegal action of the teens. Juul labs cannot easily control teens getting there hands on Juuls all they can do is keep making there ads more adult based rather than making them attractive to teens. Juul spokeswoman Victoria Davis said the company "has strict guidelines" to make sure that they are targeting adults and not teens.
proofread and develop further
The makers of Juul should not be held accountable for teenage usage. Juul labs can increase buying age and do anything in their power to stop illegal use but teenagers will find a way to get one anyways. The makers of Juul have targeted younger audiences in the past, but now claim how completely against underage use they are. Underage use is a major problem but Juul can not be blamed for teenagers poor decisions.
The company behind the "Juul" should not be held responsible for it being used in classrooms because they are not selling their product directly to the customer. When a firearm is sold to a person who decides to use it illegally, the manufacturer of the weapon is not at fault, the person who bought the gun is. This same standard should be held to Juul Labs and their customers. Also, I do believe that extra measures should be taken to prevent the sell of them to minors and to keep them out of the classroom. For example, Juul Labs could restrict the product to in-store purchase only, with a valid ID required, This would negate all false online purchases by minors using other peoples' IDs, or fake ones altogether.
It is said that Juul Labs mission is to get adult smokers to switch to a less harmful source of nicotine.Yes, it concerns adults and adults only. It was never their intention for their products to get in the hands of minors. Even before Juuls were even manufactured, vape companies such as Smok, Wismec, Ijoy, and even Snowwolf managed to find their products in the hands of an under-aged teenager, but nobody was making vape products a concern then. Overall, Juul Labs is a multi-billion dollar company putting forth an effort, or better the alternative options, for those adults who smoke combustible tobacco cigarettes, not for the amusement of minors.
