Big Tobacco insists they invested in #ecigarettes to reduce #smoking. However, the enormous health problem THEY CREATED was already going the way of the dinosaur.
According to the CDC, the number of adult smokers in the U.S. plunged from 42.4 percent in 1965 to only 14 percent in 2017. Seeing the writing on the wall, #tobacco companies like Altria (the maker of Marlboro) bought 35 percent stock in JUUL. Now their former execs run the company. Others invested in their own electronic nicotine delivery systems like IQOS and Reynolds America’s VUSE.
Through stealth marketing campaigns obviously targeting teenagers, JUUL hooked a new generation on #nicotine. After late federal scrutiny and a huge investment from Big Tobacco, they shifted their focus toward duping the dwindling smoking population to “switch” and those that had quit their addictions to jump back into a new nicotine trap.
The only thing that Big Tobacco is trying to end is their rapidly declining sales.
Keep your money. Protect your health. Don’t “switch”. QUIT!
