Our Responsibility

We believe JUUL is the first viable alternative for adult smokers. Those who don’t currently use nicotine products should not start. We recognize that alternative tobacco products continue to be the subject of conversation. We welcome dialogue, debate, and data. Below are several JUUL Labs perspectives on these topics.

Regulation & Public Policy

We support reasonable regulation of tobacco and nicotine products and comply with all relevant laws and regulations.

We did not create JUUL to undermine years of effective tobacco control, and we do not want to see a new generation of users. We believe JUUL can accelerate cigarette displacement.

We are committed to understanding JUUL’s performance and impact. Incorporating the latest research from leading scientists in the field drives our innovation.

We want to be part of the solution to end cigarette use, not part of a problem to attract youth, never smokers, or former smokers to nicotine products. We invest our time and resources in new ways to deliver JUUL exclusively to adult smokers, and we welcome discussions on this topic.

Marketing & Social Media Code

Marketing plays a role in making adult smokers aware of alternatives to combustible cigarettes. Juul Labs conducts all of its marketing in accordance with a strict set of guidelines. These guidelines include assuring that our marketing is clear on the following points:

  • JUUL is a nicotine product intended for adult smokers of legal purchase age.
  • JUUL is not appropriate or intended for those under age.
  • JUUL is not intended for former smokers or never smokers.
  • JUUL is a switching product. JUUL products are not intended to be used as cessation products, for the cure or treatment of nicotine addiction (e.g., smoking cessation), relapse prevention, nor for the relief of nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
  • We do not feature images or situations intended for an underage audience. Our campaigns depict appropriately-aged individuals. We do not use cartoons, caricatures, or other designs aimed at attracting minors.
  • We ensure the responsible placement of our product to limit exposure to those under age.
  • Paid product sampling complies with all federal and state regulations. We support and comply with all federal and state regulations to prevent sales to minors – this includes stringent third-party age verification for online sales.
  • Juul Labs does not engage in social media promotions or advertising.
    • Currently, the only corporate social media accounts Juul Labs operates are the Juul Labs Twitter account (@juulvapor), LinkedIn, and an age-gated YouTube channel for non-promotional purposes only.
    • Advertising and/or promotion of JUUL products is strictly prohibited on these accounts.
    • Permitted posts are limited to non-promotional communications and would include the following categories: (1) company news (e.g., new employees), (2) press releases on scientific research, (3) public policy updates, and (4) potential product safety notices.
  • Juul Labs does not engage in lifestyle influencer marketing on Facebook, Instagram, or similar social media platforms; and Juul Labs contractually prohibits Juul Labs’ commercial partners (e.g. retailers and distributors) from engaging in these practices.
