Cayuga County Receives Share of JUUL Settlement Funds


$4.7 million is going to combat youth vaping in Central New York.

Attorney General Letitia James announced that Cayuga County will receive $397,684.96 while Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES will receive $188,908.33.

Like the big tech companies that have fueled a mental health crisis among young people with their addictive products, JUUL marketed its dangerous and addictive vapes to children, putting millions at risk,” said Attorney General James. “Across our state, e-cigarette use among kids spiked after JUUL hit the market. I’m proud that my office ensured JUUL paid for the damage they did to young people. The funds we secured will help schools and communities in Central New York fight back against the youth vaping epidemic. I thank all of my partners in government for their partnership in this effort to protect our children.”

The money comes from a multistate settlement secured from JUUL for its role in the youth vaping epidemic.
