The e-cigarette was invented in 2003 by a Chinese pharmacist, and subsequently developed into the third generation of customizable, refillable e-liquids, such as JUUL.
The JUUL pod is the replaceable nicotine cartridge, which contains the e-liquid of the addictive alkaloid of the plant, Nicotiana tabacum. Nicotine has permanent adverse effects upon brain development manifested in cognitive impairment, drug abuse, and psychiatric disorders.
JUUL is simply rechargeable with a USB port, and the pods are in a variety of flavors with dangerous substances such as metals and carcinogens. The flavoring compounds are also linked to respiratory diseases such as bronchiolitis.
JUUL and similar products should be banned by the Federal government.
