US - General: Juul Labs and its former investor Altria have reached a settlement with the state of Minnesota over Juul’s alleged deceptive marketing. Minnesota attorney general Keith Ellison said: “One of my goals in bringing this case was to send a message: we will not tolerate youth marketing of nicotine products in Minnesota. My office will continue to do its part to protect kids from getting hooked on these harmful products.” Juul has now settled with 48 states and territories, and the company’s priority remains securing authorisation of its premarket tobacco product applications (PMTAs).

The court of appeal ruled that the TCA does not expressly or implicitly preempt a city’s prohibition on selling flavoured tobacco.
