Juul says it helps adults quit smoking cigarettes. San Francisco officials want e-cig companies out of the city, with City Attorney Dennis Herrera saying, "let’s be clear, their product is addiction."
Juul Labs, headquartered in city-owned property in the Dogpatch neighborhood, makes up over 70 percent of the e-cigarette market.
Top U.S. tobacco company Altria last year bought a 35 percent stake in Juul, bringing the nation's leading e-cigarette and old school flaming-cigarette makers together at last.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Juul spent over $1.6 million lobbying for tobacco last year.
You never know who you'll run into over in the Dogpatch.
