It’s 2018 and there is a new epidemic going on around the United States. You have probably heard of it or
have maybe even used one, juuling. The term juuling usually refers to this recreational use. Many students
bring their juul to school because of their sleek design and resemblance to a USB drive, juul products are
easy for students to conceal and use in schools, maybe even sometimes while the class is going on.
The product is made for and legally available to only adults 18 and older. However in many cases, the
media has reported that these devices are being used by kids and teenagers mainly to look “cool”. The
juul itself can be used unless you have a thing called a pod. A pod is what you put into the juul to get the
nicotine and puffs. Each pod has about 200 puffs, which has the same amount of nicotine as an entire
pack of cigarettes.
A juul is basically an e cigarette, but researchers don’t really know how bad juuls can affect someone’s life.
Dr. Michael Ong says that “ There likely would be health risks associated with it, though they’re not going
to be the same as a traditional cigarette. So I have to say it, it is not cool to juul especially in school.
