—Building on the company’s efforts to enforce appropriate age verification at retail through its secret-shopper program.
—Calling on social-media platforms to remove content showing or encouraging youth use of Juul.
—Calling on online marketplaces to remove content that violates Juul resale agreements by offering Juul products for sale without age verification.
—Providing educational material at retail locations where Juul products are sold and on the Juul website to help increase parents’ awareness of Juul and provide information on the negative impacts of nicotine on youth.
