NORTHBROOK, Ill. – State Rep. Jonathan Carroll, Chairperson of the state’s House Consumer Protection Committee, issued a statement following the ruling by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which banned the sale of ‘Juul’-branded e-cigarettes.

“Nicotine is an addictive chemical substance to which children should not be exposed. In recent years, lawmakers and regulators nationwide had successfully cracked down on the pernicious efforts by Big Tobacco to market their dangerous products to children and teens. But, with the advent of e-cigarettes, youth addiction once again skyrocketed. The FDA was absolutely correct to recognize the danger posed by addictive e-cigarettes to impressionable youth and to ban the sale of these products nationwide. I applaud this decision. Protecting children from unscrupulous corporations peddling harmful and addictive substances is a no-brainer.”
