E-cigarette company, Juul announced it’s taking steps to curb its appeal to potential underage users. It has made its Facebook and Instagram accounts inactive.

Critics of the top e-cigarette startup say it’s too little, too late. Analysts think these measures will only cause a slight dip in sales for Juul. The actions come as the Food and Drug Administration prepares to issue guidelines many think will put severe restrictions on the sale of e-cigarette products.
