PHOENIX — Arizona's attorney general is suing cigarette giant Juul Labs for alleged violations of state consumer fraud laws.

Tuesday's move makes it the latest state to go after the company as youth vaping explodes. Attorney General Mark Brnovich also sued a second vaping company, Eonsmoke.

He said that company doubled down on Juul's marketing to youth and continued it after Juul suspended many marketing efforts of flavored vape cartridges.

Brnovic says both used flavors and high nicotine content to hook young people. Juul says its focused on earning public trust and is working to discourage youth vaping.

Eonsmoke didn't immediately comment
