HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A lecturer at Harvard Law School says an investigation by 39 states leaves Juul Labs with little choice but to change its marketing practices.

James Tierney said Tuesday that “when you see these kinds of numbers, it means they’re in a world of hurt.”

Attorneys general from Connecticut, Florida, Nevada, Oregon and Texas say they will lead the multi-state investigation into San Francisco-based Juul.

The company also is facing lawsuits from teenagers and others who say they became addicted to the company’s vaping products.

Juul says it has halted television, print and digital advertising and eliminated most flavors.
