Senators Ask Juul for Information About Marketing E-Cigarettes to Youth

Eleven U.S. senators wrote a letter to e-cigarette maker Juul Labs this week, asking for information about the company’s marketing to youth, CNN reports.

The senators also asked about Juul’s relationship with tobacco company Altria, which invested almost $13 billion in the company in 2018.
