I do not want a case that arises out of a teen who is injured or dies from an e-cigarette like JUUL.
My message? Just DON”T do it. This is bad. Read on.
In the end, if you disagree, I want to know why? Share your thoughts. Am I wrong? Am I just a greedy lawyer> Tell us all what you think.
JUUL and e-cigs came into Hawai‘i.
I’m standing up to them. Will you join me?
We know about nicotine. Right?
Life-long psychological and physical need for the high. JUUL delivers the greatest nicotine dose to an inhaler _ Teen _ that has ever been delivered. The CDC has warned that e-cigarettes and JUUL have caused the biggest TEEN addiction crisis in the history of the country.
JUUL? “The puff”. The inhale. Not tobacco. Not an attack on the throat. The “stick” in your hand. You now know what “want” means. JUUL is “want”. After a short time of use, “want” becomes “need”. In the 1940’s Big Tobacco worked tirelessly to reduce the throat-burn. Big tobacco is back in ownership of JUUL and other e-cigs. Juul solves the throat-burn problem in sales.
Do you know anyone who has tried to quit smoking? Cocaine? Alcohol? Opioids? /
Well, then, you know.
But it is not just nicotine addiction, which is guaranteed.

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. health officials announced a breakthrough Friday into the cause of a mysterious outbreak of vaping illnesses, reporting they have a “very strong culprit.”
The same chemical compound was found in fluid taken from the lungs of 29 patients across the country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. The compound — vitamin E acetate — was previously found in liquid from electronic cigarettes and other vaping devices used by many of those who got sick.
But this is the first time they’ve found a common suspect in the damaged lungs of patients, officials said.
“We are in a better place in terms of having one very strong culprit,” said the CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat.
Agency officials cautioned they cannot rule out all other toxic substances, and it may take animal studies to clearly show vitamin E acetate causes the lung damage that’s been seen.
More than 2,000 Americans who vape have gotten sick since March, many of them teen and young adults, and at least 40 people have died. The bulk of the cases occurred in August and September but new cases are still being reported.
Vitamin E acetate has only recently been used as a thickener in vaping fluid, particularly in black market vape cartridges. While vitamin E is safe as a vitamin pill or to use on the skin, inhaling oily droplets of it can be harmful. It’s sticky and stays in the lungs — the CDC’s Dr. Jim Pirkle likened it to honey.
And then there are the “flavors”. Mint and Mango. Exotic. When heated, the flavors create killer chemicals.
Just DON’T do it.
My office in Honolulu is standing up to these corporate killers.
