Another Kansas school district is considering suing a leading e-cigarette maker.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the school board for USD 497 will consider Monday whether to join legal action against Juul. The potential litigation would seek to recoup money the district says it has spent on education, enforcement and monitoring to minimize vaping.
Several other districts in the Kansas City and Manhattan areas have already sued. The lawsuits argue Juul’s marketing has targeted teenagers who are not legally allowed to use tobacco products.
Juul has said it doesn’t market to youth and its products are meant to be an alternative to smoking.
