Juul also purchased ads on a host of websites created to help middle school and high school students with their homework, the lawsuit claims.
Maura Healey has filed a lawsuit against the e-cigarette company JUUL for its role in creating what she calls a "youth vaping epidemic", and for its marketing ploys meant to lure youth to e-smoking.
In the lawsuit's filing, Healey placed the blame for "the fact that millions of young people nationwide are now addicted to e-cigarettes" squarely on the shoulders of JUUL and its executives. Although Tower Data said that 83% of the approximately 420,000 email addresses on JUUL's marketing list could not be matched with the record of an individual at least eighteen years of age, the company continued to send marketing emails to the list for a full year, the lawsuit said.
"[Juul] figured out how to deliver nicotine more intensely, more rapidly, more deceptively to our young people than any company has ever done in history", Myers said.
Juul executives declined immediate comment on the lawsuit.
E-cigarette brand JUUL Labs is being sued for intentionally marketing and selling its e-cigarettes to young people on platforms such as Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, following its product's launch in 2015.

Cult presented an overall "creative" concept to JUUL that included images, slogans, and scripts for a JUUL advertising campaign.
