Paxton said the settlement with JUUL included restrictions on marketing, sales and distribution. Limitations included:
- Prohibition of Marketing Targeting Youth
- In-store displays and access restrictions
- Online sales restrictions
- retail sales limit
- Age verification requirements for all sales
