New York State Attorney General Letitia James is going after Juul.

She announced Tuesday morning that New York state is suing the e-cigarette maker, holding the company responsible for what she calls a crisis of youth and nicotine use.

James says right now, more than four million high school students and more than one million middle school students are using e-cigarettes.

James said they are going after Juul because they control more than 70 percent of the market.

She says in reality, e-cigarettes contain significant amounts of nicotine and are not cessation devices.
