How Juul’s plan to teach students about vaping went up in smoke

(CNN)The leading maker of e-cigarettes, Juul Labs, attempted to roll out an anti-vaping curriculum in schools earlier this year, offering school districts thousands of dollars and new technologies to implement it, according to documents and emails obtained by CNN.

The company abandoned these efforts in May, not long after its initial outreach, in response to a backlash from health and education advocates.
“Under no circumstance should anybody from the tobacco, nicotine, vaping industries be involved in or implementing tobacco prevention programs,” said Bonnie Halpern-Felsher, professor of pediatrics in Stanford University’s Division of Adolescent Medicine. She published an article last month slamming the curriculum in the Journal of Adolescent Health.
