JUUL Takes Beating From House Dems

California Democrats under fire after vaping company Juul sponsors convention
The California Democratic Party is taking heat from some of its own members after allowing e-cigarette maker Juul Labs to sponsor the party’s convention two weeks ago.
In Washington, House Democrats demanded documents last week from Juul Labs as part of a probe into the teen vaping epidemic.
During the three-day convention, Juul’s logo flashed on a screen as conventiongoers watched a slew of speakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and some 2020 White House hopefuls.
E-cigarette giant Juul Labs gave nearly $100,000 to members of Congress during the first half of 2019 as the company faced the bulk of the blame for a surge of underage vaping and calls for tighter government regulation of the industry.
The new FEC figures show that Democrats, who won control of the House during last year’s elections, received $74,000 from Juul’s PAC between January 1 and June 30 while Republicans received $22,500.
Juul also gave $2,500 to a left-leaning group called VoteVets.
