I agree with Jul however the Stanford professor analysis was total B.S. but that's the majority of Ivy league academia they just fine something from nothing.

Jul paints a tale of unintended consequences but how can you work in advertising and be so ignorant about the consequences of advertising. It was intentionally targeted toward young people.

This is a very terrible situation, but no offense, did you hear that father in the end? He blamed everyone else except himself and his wife. I mean, f**k, he found Juul several times AND a large bag of weed in his teenage son's room and still trusted his son's lies until he was completely addicted. You can kill a company or a whole industry to stop addiction, but you can kill stupidity.
