• Collier County Public Schools is committed to keeping parents informed on rising nationwide trends. Below is important information regarding Juul devices, which have become popular among young adults. These devices are often hidden in plain sight, disguised as familiar objects. We are working with our school leaders and teachers to keep these devices out of our schools. We need parents to be just as vigilant at home as part of this effort.

    We recognize students may want to quit but are addicted. Text QUIT to 706-222-QUIT to get started.

  • WHAT IS A JUUL? (pronounced "jewel")

    • A battery-powered vape system containing a pod pre-filled with a high volume of nicotine
    • Tiny Juul pods contain as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes

     

    WHY IS IT POPULAR AMONG TEENS?

    • Juuls come in a variety of flavors and smells (fruit medley, mango, crème brulee, cool cucumber)
    • These devices are very small and easy to hide, often disguised as USB drives, chargers, and Sharpie pens
