Juul co-founder calls underage use 'serious problem'

Juul co-founder James Monsees on Thursday told a House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee hearing on Thursday the company "never wanted" non-nicotine users and "certainly nobody underage" to use the e-cigarette and highlighted progress on smoking cessation, as the company continues to face scrutiny on Capitol Hill.

Juul co-founder calls underage use 'serious problem'

U.S. federal judge earlier this month ordered the Food and Drug Administration to impose a 10-month deadline for the submission of e-cigarette applications, turning the screws on companies like Juul Labs Inc whose products have come under intense scrutiny for their popularity among teenagers.

The FDA last month proposed the shorter timeline after the U.S. District Court for Maryland ruled in a lawsuit filed by anti-tobacco groups that the agency had exceeded its authority in allowing e-cigarettes to remain on the market until 2022 before companies applied for regulatory approval.

Before last month, the agency had proposed makers of e-cigarettes have until August 2021 to submit a formal application to keep selling their products.

But the public health and anti-tobacco groups that originated the suit countered that e-cigarette and cigar makers submit applications within 120 days.
