Psssst... that's not a flash drive.
The JUUL is a type of e-cigarette that's showing up in high schools around the country. Their small size allows them to be puffed discreetly-- even in class.
JUUL pods come in flavors like creme brulee and cucumber, and the device can be charged through any USB port. But make no mistake -- this is NOT candy. Each pod contains 5 percent nicotine and is equivalent to an entire pack of cigarettes. Youth Radio's Finley Davis talks about the trend at her high school for this edition of #DidYouKnow.
UPDATE 4/24/18: The US Food and Drug Administration announced it plans to crack down on retailers who sell JUULs and other e-cigarettes to minors. "We don't yet fully understand why these products are so popular among youth," wrote Scott Gottlieb, the FDA's commissioner, in a public statement. "But it's imperative that we figure it out, and fast."
