Minnesota Health Department Seeks Public Input on JUUL Settlement
Minnesota Health Department seeks public input on $60.5M JUUL settlement for nicotine prevention and cessation efforts.

Last May, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison announced a $60.5 million settlement agreement with JUUL Labs over deceptive marketing of e-cigarettes. Now, the Minnesota Department of Health is seeking public input on how to use this money.


Parker Smith from the state health department stated, "The purpose of these opinion surveys is to truly engage with the community, understand what solutions community members would like to see. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. Therefore, it is important for us to listen to the public, understand their realities, and tailor our ongoing efforts in prevention and smoking cessation according to their needs." He also mentioned that a portion of the funding will be used to repay legal fees.


In the past, we have collaborated with the community to gather opinions on various strategies and business tobacco prevention and control initiatives. But with this funding, we have the opportunity to do some new things, some innovative things for nicotine control.


The next public consultation will be held at the St. Claude River District Library this Wednesday, February 21st, from 2:00 to 3:30 in the afternoon.
