Juul Moving to D.C.

Juul Labs is moving its headquarters from San Francisco to Washington, D.C.

The company has faced much regulatory backlash in the past years as they have been accused of marketing to youth and faced many lawsuits. Moving headquarters to Washington will put the company closer to regulators and distance it from “Silicon Valley’s growth-at-all-costs culture,” according to people familiar with the matter.

The move follows other restructuring efforts, such as cutting the workforce, closing some U.S. offices, and scaling back in Europe and Asia.

“Any ruling by this court as to the procedural or substantive reasonableness of the August 2017 guidance would amount to nothing more than an advisory opinion,” the court said.

The appeal stems from a Maryland district court ruling that ordered the agency to set a May 2020 deadline for premarket tobacco product applications (PMTA) on smokeless tobacco products. The FDA, along with various health and anti-vaping groups, had argued that the January guidance restricting the sale of flavored, cartridge-based vapes rendered moot the vape groups’ appeal.

“Because the enforcement timetable for e-cigarettes set out in the January 2020 guidance is independent of the district court’s order, an order by this court reversing the district court would have no effect on FDA’s enforcement of the statute and regulations against e-cigarette manufacturers,” the agency had previously said.
