Syracuse School District to receive $137,161 in compensation from e-cigarette manufacturer Juul, joining over 140 districts in New York receiving settlements.

According to CNYCentral, the Syracuse School District in the United States is set to receive $137,161 in compensation from e-cigarette manufacturer Juul.

Over 140 school districts in New York state have received over $3.6 million in compensation to alleviate the burden of their ongoing lawsuits against Juul. These districts claim that the company deliberately marketed e-cigarette products to children.

According to the Snowtown School District, "The use of e-cigarettes by students has resulted in the district having to bear the costs of staff time, disciplinary procedures, and other expenses, which will only increase unless and until students cease using these devices.

According to a survey conducted by the FDA in 2022, more than one out of every four middle and high school students use e-cigarettes on a daily basis, with nearly 85% of them preferring fruit-flavored e-cigarettes.

This settlement will provide funds for schools to address future expenses related to teenage smoking issues, including installing e-cigarette detectors, hiring additional staff to monitor smoking areas on campus, employing extra consultants to handle societal and emotional issues related to nicotine addiction, and developing and implementing educational programs on the dangers of e-cigarettes.

On October 11, 2021, the School District School Board of Serracusa approved this settlement, deciding that it is necessary, beneficial, and ideal, aligning with the public interest and the best interests of the school district. The district should address this lawsuit.
