Tobacco has been prevalent on Wall St. for as long as the institution itself has existed, so I decided to start one end-all-be-all discussion on the vice that undoubtedly grips more of your colleagues than you could ever imagine. Today, with the increasing popularity of the Juul, I find all nicotine products to be more widely accepted than normal and thus I have noticed a trend favoring more widespread use of everything from Juuls themselves, to cigarettes, dip, etc.
Has anyone else noticed that despite all the controversy surrounding the Juul it has definitely served to strengthen the use of nicotine products in general. Any ballsy analysts ripping a juul in your office? Are people still packing fat lips at the desk when the MDs go home? Is nicotine starting to be somewhat embraced by your circle instead of being demonized?
Thanks for the read.
