The creators of Juul shouldn't be held responsible for the teenagers who acquire their product illegally. The creators have no action over how kids acquire their product. They simply make and distribute the product to companies and they mark it as an 18 and older purchase. If kids can find a way around the barrier of getting that product the seller should be held responsible not the creator of the original product.

The creators of Juul should not be held responsible for the illegal use of their product. They, as a company, have taken many precautions to withhold their product from minors. By publishing how it is difficult to kick an addiction if started at a young age especially with the amount of concentrated nicotine that is in their product, Juul has made it known of the harmful effects of their drug. What teenagers do when they get their hands on one either by websites or an adult purchasing the product, is not reliable on the creators of Juul.
No, the makers of Juul should not be held responsible for teenagers who use their product illegally. Why should the company be responsible for a choice that kids are making on their own? Juul isn't forcing anyone to use their product and state multiple times that their product is not meant for children. It is the teenagers fault if they decide to Juul and their fault alone and it is even illegal for them to use it if they aren't 18 or older. That's just like saying that if a company sold a knife that was used in a crime the company who sold it should be responsible for what happened.
Juul sales have increased over the past year and the main buyers are 18 and younger. In my opinion I think the company making Juuls should not be responsible for under age children buying their product. I think this because in the article "Back-to-school: Juul Labs e-cigarette sales growth vexes teachers" it states " Juul says its efforts show it has tried to keep its products out of the hands of minors... Laws currently limit tobacco product sales to people who are at least 18 years old." There are laws which can stop a minor from purchasing them but its the adults who let the minors have their hands on them.
Makers of the Juul should not be held responsible for teenagers who illegally use their product.The makers of Juul does there best to keep teenager and young adult from using there products but its not their job to keep track of everyone who uses this product.The article states that they monitor post that target minors and request to have it taken down and the company they monitor and detect active online sales. This shows that the company is doing what they can to stop illegal usage. The Juul company should not be held responsible but they minor should because they knew what they were doing is wrong.
Juul Makers should be held responsible for teenagers who illegally use their product. In the article provided the author states that "as Juul's business grows, so does the risk that more kids will use the e-cigarettes" while this is true the company really isn't doing anything to stop it from being a problem. As the Juul business began to market their product "they made post on social media of youthful-looking models having fun with the product". If they had a view of targeting adult smokers then they should have had older people showing off their product. In the article it also states that "12,010 incidents of illegal sales to eBay have been made" if Juul knows that the youth is buying their product then they should take responsibility for it.
The makers of Juul should not be held responsible for minors illegally buying their product. Juul is a tabacco product and is illegal to anyone under 18 (21 in some states). The makers of Juul know this and are spending millions of dollars to stop minors from buying Juuls. Kids find ways around this just as they do with acquiring cigarettes or alcohol. Minors may even go to the stores themesleves and buy the products because the cashier does not check their ID.
Not just cigarette companies are responsible for using imagery that appeals to the teenage generation it is now the newest thing Juuls . Juuls are using the same kind of imagery all over the place that attract the young population and should be held responsible for the teens becoming addicted to nicotine. When Juul just became the new thing the makers of Juul posted their advertisements all over social media with younger teen models having a great time with the Juul product. The Juul companies say they are trying to prevent young buyers by changing their policy online to 21 years old with proof of identification but that is not going to stop anything honestly. There has been 12,010 incidents of illegal sales. Juuls company should be held responsible for the teens who illegally use their product for the fact that the advertisement they put out for juuls is for our generation.
The makers of the Juul have made millions of dollars off of teenagers who are hoping on the trend, but they should not be held responsible for the teenagers who have illegally obtained and used their product. The PAX Labs is the company that makes the Juul. They are not targeting or selling their product directly to under aged teens. Tees are illegally using the product at their own risk. The case can be compared to any other product that has an age restriction. For example, alcohol is a product that has an age limit of 21 years old. Even though it has an age limit of there are many people under the age of 21 that obtain and use these beverages. The companies that create the alcoholic drinks have not been blamed or held responsible for the teens that go about getting their products illegally. The Juul case is no different. There is very little that PAX Labs can do that would keep a friend, sibling, or even parent of age from obtaining the product for an under aged teen.
The makers of Juul should not be held accountable for teens who use the product illegally. In the article it states, that nationwide cigarette smoking among high school students has gone down from 36.4% to 8.8%, which is a drastic decrease. This is most likely because of the introduction of the Juul and other electronic vapor devices, and the reason the company was founded was to help people stop smoking and create a healthier way to get nicotine to people who are addicted. They are using the Juul for it's intended purpose, and it has helped them stop smoking which is way less healthy. Blaming the makers of Juul for the illegal use would be like blaming gun manufacturers for gun related homicides. The law doesn't blame the company for making the product, it blames the person behind it and his or her decision to do so knowing that it is illegal.
There are multiple reasons for why the makers of Juul should not be held responsible for the underage use of smoking. This companies products were originally made to help adult smokers and other types of tobacco users quit. Juul made their advertisement more see able by the youth by putting it out on social media, many people will say, but anybody and everybody who has social media access will be able to see it. The company is under siege to try and prevent the underage and illegal buyers from getting them.
Makers of Juul should not be held responsible for teenagers illegally using their products. It clearly states the age requirement on their website and on the doors of where they are sold. There is no possible way for Juul to be able to monitor who all uses their products. Juul is doing everything they can to try and keep their products from being used by minors. The article talks about how Juul requires some proof of age before someone purchases one of their products from their website. Juul has and continues to do all they can to try and keep their products out of the hands of minors.
Makers of the Juul should not be held responsible for teenagers who use their product illegally. Now of days, parents re not keeping track of what their kids are doing in their life's. People that are over the age to buy a juul are going out and buying many juuls and are giving them to teenager who are not legal to have one. As the article states " 13.2 percent of high school students reported using electronic vapor products." This means that the makers have no idea on who is getting the product, they are just selling it to people that are over the age and have money. The juul was made so that some adults can slow down on smoking or even quit smoking and most teenagers don't realize that. In school's the percent of students using vapor products will go up because teenager are getting them and selling them, and the makers have no idea.
The makers of the Juul should not be held accountable for the children who are using their product illegally. The Juul, much like other electronic cigarettes, cannot be purchased by someone under the age of 18. If children are somehow getting access to these devices, it is not the company's fault. The only thing the company did was manufacture, sell, and promote their product to adult smokers just like other companies. In the article they make a point to show that on JUUL.com, the minimum age that you can purchase the device is 21 with proof of age. The company is making an effort to make sure that only adult smokers have access.
Among teens, "Juuling" has become a horrible epidemic, and Juul Labs is at fault. This electronic-cigarette is a small device that individuals can inhale to take in nicotine, and is a much safer alternative to smoking cigarettes. However, Juul has recently become a trend for students and is plaguing our homes and classrooms. Whether a teenager receives a Juul from a friend or orders it online their self, teens manage to get a hold of them, and Juul Labs has not taken appropriate action to halt this. By showing commercials of Juuls on channels broadcasting to a younger demographic, this brand has extended its reach into the youth's arms. Juul's advertising is similar to the same adverts created by tobacco companies to appeal to young adults.
The makers of the Juul should be held responsible for teenagers who illegally use their product. Juuling is a very popular thing among teenagers these days, but the makers have no way of knowing who has them. For example, an adult could go into a gas station and buy one legally but then give it to a minor. The selling of the Juul to the adult was legal which means the makers have no way of knowing they gave it to a minor. "The minimum age for users to make purchases on JUUL.com is 21..." This shows that the company has gone above the age limit in some states to buy tobacco to help try to reduce he number of children owning and using one. That is all they can do since they can not put a tracker on each Juul purchased and find out personal information about the user.
With the smoke rising in the air, it leaves a question on where it is coming from. The makers of Juul should not be blamed for the illegal use of their product. Many teens that are too young for nicotine use have access to it. They go to older friends or family member who can get them a juul legally and become a supplier. This is illegal distribution. The company Juul can't control this and should not be responsible for it. Illegal distribution is a part of a channel of many other products, such as alcohol and prescription drugs, that require a certain age or a written document. The suppliers to teens under 18 are the ones that are responsible for the illegal use of juuls not the company.
The creators of Juul should not be held responsible for the illegal use of juuls. People who are underage know that they are not legally allowed to use any type of nicotine product, but they still have someone go get them a juul, or pods. The ones truly responsible are the ones who are allowing people under 18 to own, and use a juul. The people who own Juul have nothing to do with who is getting they're product, they did what they are supposed to do and put an age requirement, and a label on how dangerous and addictive nicotine can be on the package.
The juul makers should be held responsible for teenagers illegally using their product. The FDA has uncovered many violations of illegal sales of juuls. Others are a result of our sustained enforcement efforts to reduce tobacco product sales to minors. Citizens anticipate taking many more similar actions as a result of the ongoing blitz and our focus on enforcement related to youth access. The troubling reality is that electronic nicotine delivery systems such as e-cigarettes and juuls have become wildly popular with kids.
The makers of Juul should not be punished or held accountable for the illegal use of their product. This company does not have the abilty to control whether young teenagers under the age of 18 use juul products or not. Although the legal age to buy this product is 18, some teenagers can easily ask a friend who is of age to buy them one. There are many ways around this age law to get a juul and the makers of juul shoud not be punished for the illgeal use of the product.
The makers of the Juul can both be held responsible and not responsible for the teenagers who illegally use their product. The makers of the Juul have clearly stated in the article that it's their mission to get adult smokers to switch to a less harmful source of nicotine. While saying these things, Juul also used youthful-looking models on social media to advertise and promote, doing this attracted younger people because they noticed something that was similar to their age, if 16 year old see's another 16 year old, or another person who looks 16 they're going to pay attention while if an adult smoker seen someone who looked like they were 16 smoking they probably would not pay much attention. Juul is and is not responsible for the underage use but they didn't promote in the best of ways.
The Juul Labs are in charge of making juuls to get people ages 18 and up that smoke to stop, they cant control who gets ahold of one, so they shouldn't be responsible for underaged kids having them. "State and local laws currently limit tobacco product sales to people who are at least 18 years old." The website,"JUUL.com" requires you to be 21 years or older. Kids have found so many different ways to get ahold of juuls thats its very difficult to find everyway and stop it.
