JUUL-funded Duke researcher pushes pro-vaping stance in smoking ban to combat cigarettes

Jed Rose, director of the Duke Center for Smoking Cessation, is pushing a pro-vaping point of view. He accepts research funding from the likes of Philip Morris and JUUL. “The only work that I’m doing with the industry is completely to help people stop using combustible cigarettes in favor of less harmful ways of getting nicotine,” Rose says.
