says without her e-cigarette Juul she is cranky and anxious.
Vaping and e-cigarettes have exploded into a $5 billion industry in the

vapor’s sweet mango flavor, she started taking puffs from a Juul
e-cigarette when she was 14, not knowing it contained nicotine, the same
addictive substance found in tobacco cigarettes.
