More concerns are arising over teens using juuls to vape in school restrooms.
Those are vaping devices which look like flash drives.
Now a new study suggests teens may not know juul pods have nicotine.
A non-profit group called "truth initiative," surveyed more than a thousand teens and found 63% didn't know juuling always delivers nicotine.
Juuling is becoming popular partly because it can be hid in plain sight and used without a tell-tale odor.
In fact one jull pod has as much nicotine as a full pack of cigarettes.
"It delivers so much nicotine so rapidly, it dramatically increases the risk that a kid who experiments with this product will become addicted and then potentially go on to smoke cigarettes," explained Mattew Myers, the President of Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
Juul labs says it "strongly condemns the use of its products by minors," and is working with school districts nationwide to get a handle on the issue.
