Juul Labs is addressing one of the most common criticisms levied against the e-cigarette company: the amount of nicotine in its vaping liquids.
The leading e-cig maker will soon introduce lower nicotine options for some of its flavor pods. A tiered approach to nicotine levels is thought to help people who are trying to quit smoking because they can gradually wean themselves off nicotine, the substance that makes cigarettes addictive.

Consumer prices rose in June from a year earlier at the fastest pace in more than six years, lifted by more expensive gas, car insurance, and higher rent.
The Labor Department said Thursday that the consumer price index ticked up just 0.1 percent in June. But inflation jumped 2.9 percent from a year earlier, the largest annual gain since February 2012. Core prices, which exclude the volatile food and energy categories, rose 0.2 percent in June and 2.3 percent from a year earlier.
Solid economic growth and supply bottlenecks have pushed inflation past the Federal Reserve's 2 percent target, after price gains had languished below that level for six years. That is a key reason that Fed officials expect to raise short-term rates twice more this year.

Congress' fight over President Donald Trump's now abandoned policy of separating migrant families stirred anew Wednesday, drawing fresh attention to an issue that has divided Republicans and that Democrats hope will propel voters their way in the midterm elections.
The battling at the House Appropriations Committee underscored how both parties still see vast political potency in immigration, even as congressional votes have shown that partisan differences and divisions within the GOP make it unlikely anything will reach Trump's desk soon.

The Los Angeles city councilman who represents the Hollywood Hills area remained neutral Tuesday on the idea of an aerial tram to the Hollywood Sign, a day after Warner Bros. came forward with a proposal to fund one at a cost of $100 million.
The idea of an aerial tram to the Hollywood Sign as way to cut down on traffic and congestion is not new. Mayor Eric Garcetti said he was open to the idea last year, and it was also included in a January report to the City Council that included more than two dozen ideas about improving access to the famed sign.
The city council is still assessing the report and Councilman David Ryu has not endorsed any of the proposals in the report from Dixon Resources Unlimited while the council is analyzing them.
A Massachusetts man has done the unthinkable and won a total of nine $100,000 grand prizes on tickets he purchased for Monday night's Mass Cash drawing.
Robert Lundstedt of Brockton had a strange feeling about the drawing, so he bought four tickets at Trucchi's Supermarket in West Bridgewater, two tickets at Quick Stop in West Bridgewater, two more at The Corner Market in West Bridgewater, and one ticket at Cumberland Farms in Bridgewater.
"I bought a Gatorade, gave her a five, I had change," Lundstedt said of buying the final ticket. "I had the ticket in my pocket, and I said, 'Here, just play this one time.' And I did."

The Thai boys saved from a flooded cave endured dives in zero visibility lasting up to half an hour and in places were put in a harness and high-lined across rocky caverns, said two members of the U.S. contingent that was part of the unprecedented operation.
The operation was very risky and came as planners realized they didn't have the luxury of waiting for better conditions as oxygen levels in the cave fell, said Air Force Maj. Charles Hodges, mission commander inside the cave for the last three days of the rescue.
"We were fully expecting casualties. The multi-national effort though absolutely knocked it out of the park," Hodges said.
