JUUL CEO Steps Down, Former FDA Commissioner Speaks.

"Kevin Burns has stepped down as chief executive of embattled e-cigarette maker Juul, amid intensifying scrutiny of the brand's marketing practices and a public health crisis that has seen nine deaths related to vaping products and 530 confirmed cases of vaping-related lung disease" cites CNBC News today.

Amid news of merger talks with Phillip Morris & Altria fizzling out, could this be the change that the vaping industry foreground needs to get over this "youth epidemic"? 

In this CNBC video, former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb weighs in on the current market in the United States, the structure change at JUUL, and the possibility to see vape products marketed as over-the-counter quitting smoking aids in the future.
