LAKE COUNTY, Ill. (WTHR) — A county in Illinois is suing the maker of one of the largest e-cigarette companies in the country.

Lake County is joining several private Chicago law firms to sue, "Juul Labs."

They claim the company is preying on teenagers and pre-teens and turning them into addicts.

Juul responded by saying they've never marketed to youth in this manner.
