JUUL’s Popularity May Have Contributed to a Decline in Cigarette Sales
Despite the controversy surrounding teens, JUULing, and the FDA, in the last several years combustible cigarette sales have plummeted across the country. In fact, they have declined to their lowest point ever.
In 2017, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Preventions reported that the adult smoking rate hit 14.1 percent the first nine months of 2017, down from a rate of 15.8 percent in 2016. Many market experts are attributing this decrease to the increased popularity of JUUL.
Some suggest JUUL could potentially have the power to create a national atmosphere of nonsmoking in favor of vaping. This is definitely a plus when it comes to the potential for improved health among American nicotine users. It will also make the country smell a lot better – what with fewer ashtrays, cigarette butts, and tobacco breath!
Whether You Like It Or Not, Vaping Is Probably Here to Stay
Many nonsmokers find vaping just as offensive as combustible cigarettes. There are many public places across the United States that allow vaping indoors, which raises objections among those who would prefer to see nicotine wiped off the face of the planet altogether. It also poses a threat to underage smokers.
Nevertheless, if the current booming vape sales are any indication, it is safe to say that brands like JUUL and their competitors aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
