TUESDAY, Nov. 19, 2019 (HealthDay News) — Juul, the top-selling maker of e-cigarettes in the United States, is being sued by California for allegedly targeting teens with it early marketing campaigns.

The lawsuit, filed Monday, also alleges that Juul’s website didn’t previously adequately verify customers’ ages, the Associated Press reported.

This is just one of many legal battles for Juul. It’s the focus of numerous state and federal investigations into whether its early marketing campaigns helped trigger the teen vaping crisis in the United States.

Juul denies that it marketed to teens and notes that it’s stopped advertising and taken most of its flavors off the market, the AP reported.

Reflections from my Classroom
It was a great week!
I had an observation done by my director and he was pleased with what I was doing while also giving me some ideas for managing some of my more energetic freshmen.
Speaking of freshmen, one of mine had a major break-through when he got his Android app working. He was totally psyched!
I Tweeted a picture of a sign that I put up on my classroom closet. The sign was basically a reminder to students to check with me and exhaust all possible repair options before grabbing new parts.
Also Tweeted this week, a picture of a 1994 Compaq 4/25 laptop. Original MSRP $2400 USD.

Tb to when it was summer. I actually like how the look of my gallery changes with the seasons. 🍃🍂

Mit den Jahreszeiten verändert sich zwangsläufig auch komplett das Aussehen meiner Seite hier, was mir gut gefällt.
Das Bild ist im August entstanden, als draußen noch alles grün war (offensichtlich 🙄).
