School district’s lawsuit could help in fight against teen vaping

A Kentucky school district sued Juul Labs and other e-cigarette makers last month, alleging the manufacturers harmed its students and the school district by intentionally marketing to kids. At first glance, that may sound like a stretch — this is a public agency (Bullitt County School District) suing a for-profit company (Juul) it has not done any direct business with for how it marketed its product to other people (students). But we think the actual facts in the case justify Bullitt County’s action and we won’t be surprised to see other school districts do the same.
