The state of Nebraska is set to receive a multi-million-dollar settlement. Attorney General Doug Peterson announced yesterday that the state will receive more than eight-million-dollars as part of a 438-million-dollar settlement between e-cigarette maker JUUL and 33 states and territories. An investigation alleged that JUUL engaged in advertising that appealed to youth, and the settlement requires the company to comply with terms that limit its sales and marketing practices.
