"We have never marketed to youth", the spokesperson said in an e-mail to reporters.
Earlier this month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was looking into a "cluster of pulmonary illnesses" affecting mainly adolescents and young adults in at least 14 states that were linked to e-cigarette product use. Altria's decision to invest into Juul comes as smoking rates are declining, while e-cigarette usage is increasing at a rapid rate.
Nevertheless, these strikes aren't stopping attorneys normal in IL and the District of Columbia from launching state probes to analyze "the dramatic increase in the use of vaping products by district youth", stated Marrisa Geller, a spokeswoman for District of Columbia Lawyer Normal Karl Racine, in an announcement to the Related Press.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg reported that the USA food and drug administration (FDA) launched its investigation into whether or not e-cigarettes can cause seizures, based on reports from people who used Juul devices. However, the agency said a clear-cut common cause of the illnesses hasn't been identified and they are being called "potential cases" that are still under investigation. The agency did not say how numerous patients were teens.
Juul Labs CEO Kevin Burns went as far as to say: "Don't vape".

Osaka foresees 'fun' rivalry with phenom Gauff
Naomi Osaka of Japan (R) talks with Coco Gauff of the United States (L) after their match in the third round of the 2019 U.S. That style got her past Halep, the No. 4 seed, and never let Cirstea come back in a match that lasted less than 90 minutes.
"We'd like to get all the specifics that we can to make sure we have access to the information, so if there's any issue that was driven, associated with us, that we can get to the root cause and understand that", he said.
Separately on Thursday, Juul said it was giving over $100 million of incentives to retailers to install new age-verification systems at stores, part of efforts to curb sales of e-cigarettes to minors. Raoul's office is not coordinating its investigation with other attorneys general, the official said.
Lynch's firm arranged for a meeting in the attorney general's office last November that included himself, Juul chief administrative officer Ashley Gould, Wiseman and Assistant DC Attorney General Brian Caldwell, according to emails obtained through an open records request.
He also responded to questions about whether Juul products are toxic or not, adding: "We do toxicology testing on all of our products".
