The e cigarette company jewel, I’m pleased to tell you that our arguments in the upcoming trial in july are no longer necessary. Jewel has agreed to the terms that we insisted on and the court has signed a consent. It will require jewels to fundamentally change its business practices and to pay meaningful some to the state of north Carolina. In 2018 I launched my investigation into jewelry. Any high school principal in north Carolina and you will hear what a devastating problem this is. Approximately one out of every five high schoolers in our state have used an e cigarette in the past 30 days. They did it to teenagers across north Carolina and this country simply to make money. Their greed is not only reprehensible, it is unlawful, and that is why I took action.
