Juul revenue exceeded $1 billion in 2018, an eye-popping increase from the previous year, Altria executives said in the tobacco company’s first earnings call since it acquired a 35 percent stake in the San Francisco vaping company late last year. Sales of Juul pods — the small cartridges containing liquid nicotine that can be bought as refills for the Juul vaporizer — rose sevenfold in 2018 from the previous year. Each pod is roughly equivalent to one pack of cigarettes in nicotine content. The figures offer a glimpse into Juul’s fast-growing business that is continuing to expand despite recent action by federal regulators to crack down on the sale of flavored nicotine products to teens.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is continuing to increase pressure on tobacco and e-cigarette makers to take significant measures to keep their products out of the hands of teens, with the agency indicating that Juul in particular needs to make good on its commitments to doing so. Now, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says that all e-cigarettes face an “existential threat” if they won’t take measures to combat the rising number of kids smoking.
