Jewels for Students? –

Jan. 9, 2020 – San Diego schools are suing vaping company Juul Labs, alleging it hooked teenage students on e-cigarettes and that the habit harmed their educations.

The San Diego Unified School District’s complaint, filed this week in San Diego Superior Court, claims the popularity of vaping led to “impeding learning” in schools throughout the district. The suit also alleges that teen use of Juul’s products caused more student absences and resulted in funds that otherwise would’ve been used for education going toward school-funded prevention and treatment campaigns for illnesses related to e-cigarettes.
