Recently, a new device has been raising some eyebrows from people of all ages. That device is known as the JUUL.
Many at WHHS know JUULs as e-cigarette devices that look like a USB drive that many people, sometimes in the bathroom or in class, use. Most of the time when you see this happen at school, however, the users are underage. In the state of Ohio, you must be 18 years or older to purchase one.

When it comes down to all the factors such as price, ingredients and health, people have varying opinions about the topic.

On average, someone who JUULs spends around $180 a month on supplies. This is about $58 dollars less than other e-cigarettes, accoding to a survey by LendEDU, and many people are turning to these devices to keep them satisfied throughout the month at a lower cost.
48 percent of users factor the price of JUULing in with their monthly finances, according to LendEDU’s survey.

A JUUL has five primary ingredients, according to their website: glycerol, propylene glycol, nicotine, benzoic acid and food-grade flavoring. Cigarettes, however, have around 600 ingredients, according to the American Lung Association.

While JUULs are known to be unhealthy, people have varying opinions on whether or not JUULs are better than regular cigarettes and their impact on teenagers.

Two out of every ten seventh and eighth graders at WHHS have either JUULed at least once or do it on a regular basis.

“It’s not good for your health. But honestly, if people want to do that to their body, then it’s their body. They can do whatever they want with it,” Sofia Smith, ‘24, said.

Smith believes that people have the option to do what they want and no one can stop them.

But others disagree.

“It is not the smartest thing to do to yourself because it can seriously mess with your health,” Sophie Christian, ‘23, said.

Christian believes that JUULing is a serious problem, especially for students her age. Christian strongly thinks young kids should work to quit JUULing.

Many students have mixed opinions on JUULing. Some may think it is very bad and should be banned though others feel it is an individual decision.

No matter what, it is important to never be pressured into doing something you don’t want to do.
