Former Oklahoma Republican Senator Don Nickles represents Juul Labs regarding legislative proposals to prohibit the sale of tobacco/vaping products to people under age 21 and to educate Congress about how use of its offerings cuts cigarette smoking.
Kevin Burns, Juul CEO, praised Ohio’s decision this month to raise the legal age to buy tobacco/vaping products to 21.
“We won’t succeed in providing the world’s one billion adult smokers with a true alternative to combustible cigarettes, the number one cause of preventable death in this country if youth-use continues unabated,” said Burns in a July 19 statement.
Emily Porter, partner at The Nickles Group and aide to former House Speaker John Boehner, and Don Kent, TNG VP and ex-chief of staff to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), join Nickles on the push for Juul.
Nickles, who is remembered for leading fight to repeal the federal 55 mph speed limit, works for blue-chip clients such as A&T, FedEx, Oracle, MetLife, Johnson & Johnson and Walmart.
