Dr. Tevi Troy, vice president of public policy at JUUL Labs, sheds light on the threats to the electronic cigarette industry.

Dr. Tevi Troy is vice president of public policy at JUUL Labs. Prior to this, Dr. Troy served as deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He also served as the policy director for Senator John Ashcroft and domestic policy director for the House Policy Committee, chaired by Christopher Cox.

In this podcast Dr. Tevi Troy will refer to a Bloomberg piece by Joe Nocera discussing JUUL’s popularity, as well as a recent survey of 11,689 adults by the Centers for Substance Abuse Research, which found almost 50% of survey respondents quit smoking cigarettes after switching to a JUUL vaping device.
