The e-cigarette company Juul had just settled out of court in North Carolina, USA, for $40m when accused of advertising their products to minors. Dr Nicola Gray was asked to provide information about the use of e-cigarettes by young people and to comment on the likely impact of future advertising regulations, such as banning the flavours promoted for vaping eg cucumber and mango.
