The American Academy of Pediatrics joined five other health groups in urging the FDA to take immediate action to address the rising use of JUUL e-cigarettes among young people. They requested the JUUL e-cigarettes be removed from the market, eliminate internet sales, and that stronger measures be put in place to prevent underage JUUL sales in stores.

JUUL e-cigarettes are considered an electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS). They may be called vaping pens, e-cigars or e-hookah. The device has a heating element that warms a liquid concoction of nicotine and flavors, creating a vapor for the user to inhale. JUUL e-cigs are marketed to the younger set. They look sleek and have flavors. They are charged via USB ports, making them a little more inconspicuous. One pod contains as much nicotine as a full pack of cigarettes.
E-cigarettes are becoming preferred to traditional cigarettes. Young e-cig users tend to add traditional tobacco consumption over time.
