Three South Jersey teens have filed separate lawsuits against Juul Labs Inc. According to Courier Post, two college students have filed product-liabilities suits and a Voorhees boy has filed a proposed class-action suit.

The Voorhees teen alleges he became addicted to nicotine after starting to vape at 14 years old. His suit reportedly seeks damages for all New Jersey residents “who have purchased, used, become addicted to or been otherwise harmed” by Juul's e-cigarettes.

The college students, 19-year-old Morgan Colella and 18-year-old Matthew Divello, also say they started vaping as minors. Divello’s suit alleges his nicotine addiction puts him "at serious risk for life-long health problems, including increased risk of heart disease and stroke."

All three suits are seeking unspecified damages and attorney’s fees.
