Juul Replaces CEO and Stops All Advertising As Vaping-Related Deaths Increase

Juul Replaces CEO and Stops All Advertising As Vaping-Related Deaths Increase.

Tobacco company Altria bought a 35% stake in Juul for $13 billion last year.

Altria’s chief growth officer, K.C.

Crosthwaite, will replace Kevin Burns as CEO.

Juul will also halt all TV, print and digital ads and put an end to some of its lobbying efforts.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is deciding whether to outlaw flavored e-cigarettes, which appeal to younger consumers
