On Tuesday, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced that Florida was joining a group of almost 40 state attorneys general to investigate the vaping company JUUL.

Moody’s office offered some of the details on why they were investigating JUUL.

“The nationwide investigation is exploring JUUL’s marketing and sales practices—including the targeting of youth, claims regarding nicotine content, and statements regarding risks, safety and effectiveness as a smoking cessation device,” Moody’s office noted.

“We have an epidemic of underaged vaping, not just in Florida, but nationwide,” Moody said. “As Florida’s attorney general and a mother, I cannot sit on the sidelines while this public health epidemic grows, and our next generation becomes addicted to nicotine. That is why we are acting with a sense of urgency in Florida and leading this multistate investigation into JUUL’s role in the underaged vaping epidemic.”
