MANHATTAN — Parents, kids, advocates and city officials rallied outside the Manhattan office of e-cigarette company Juul on Tuesday morning.
The group got together in front of the company’s Hudson Square offices around Spring Street and Sixth Avenue, to condemn the multi-billion-dollar company’s “campaign to hook kids on flavored tobacco products,” the release says.
Those rallying demanded that the City Council restrict the sale of flavored e-cigarettes and menthol cigarettes.
The FDA recently said they’re investigating a potential link between vaping and over 120 reports of seizures and other neurological symptoms.
Additionally, CDC health officials said they’re looking into a potential link between vaping and hundreds of cases of lung disease.
