CHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois attorney general has filed a lawsuit against e-cigarette maker Juice Man, alleging deceptive marketing practices aimed at enticing youth.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Cook County against the California-based company. The move follows a similar Illinois lawsuit in December against Juul, the nation’s biggest e-cigarette maker.
The Juice Man lawsuit claims the company used child-friendly flavors like cotton candy and used social media platforms with cartoons and giveaway competitions to entice young people. Company officials didn’t have a response to the lawsuit.
