Juul said today that part of the move was to keep children out of contact with e-cigarettes. But not everyone agrees with this view. Robert Jackler (Robert Jackler), a professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, said: "it's all about trying to establish a monopoly in the market. Imitators are their biggest business threat. "

Juul, born in Pax Labs, is a company specializing in electronic cigarettes. Juul became an independent company in July 2017, and its product Juul began to be popular among young people in the United States at the end of 2017. By September 2018, it had won 72% of the U.S. electronic cigarette market.

Recently, Juul was subjected to a criminal investigation by federal prosecutors in the United States, mainly because electronic cigarette products have caused extensive health problems. It is reported that at least seven people in the United States have been killed by smoking Juul electronic cigarettes.
