Culver Community Schools have accepted more than $14,000 from a settlement with JUUL Labs, following a school board meeting earlier this week.
The lawsuit was filed against JUUL Labs by the State of Indiana, who accused the company of targeting teens and children with their ads and merchandise.
In December, the Indiana Attorney General's Office announced the state would recieve $15.7 million from the settlement with JUUL Labs Inc. The money Indiana received will be used for prevention, education, harm reduction and mitigation efforts. Indiana's settlement is just a small chunk of a larger $435 million settlement between Juul and 32 other states.
Culver Community Schools has the potiential of receiving another $10,000 from the settlement at a later date.
