Massachusetts Medical Society: Massachusetts Medical Society supports AG Healey’s decision to file lawsuit against Juul

Massachusetts Medical Society supports AG Healey’s decision to file lawsuit against Juul

The physicians of the Massachusetts Medical Society support the action taken today by Attorney General Healey.

As physicians, we find the dangerous and dishonest tactics, ripped from the Big Tobacco playbook, that were used to introduce these deadly and addictive products to children have not only injured the health of our children but will continue to injure the health of our patients and communities for years to come.

Companies that deploy deceptive marketing approaches have sabotaged the previous successful progress made toward making this generation of children nicotine-free, and have instead fueled a public health crisis of nicotine addiction.
