Juul re­places CEO, stops e-cig­a­rette ads

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

Juul

Labs is halt­ing all US ad­ver­tis­ing of its e-cig­a­rettes and re­plac­ing its CEO amid a back­lash against va­p­ing. The largest e-cig­a­rette maker also said on Wednes­day it won’t fight a sweep­ing ban on fla­vors pro­posed by the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion to re­verse a surge in un­der­age va­p­ing. The ex­ec­u­tive, Kevin Burns, will be re­placed by KC Crosth­waite, an ex­ec­u­tive from Al­tria, the maker of Marl­boro cig­a­rettes, that owns a 35% stake in Juul.
