The article also looks at some of the positives that e-cigarettes can provide to people who struggle with beating their nicotine addiction. In conclusion, the article highlights how regulation of the e-cigarette market is going to be key in preventing it from spreading into unintended markets like youth.

MY Fest 2015 Results

We had a very successful My Fest 2015 this weekend at Tempe Beach Park.

Our purpose was to collect pledges asking that adults will not serve alcohol to underage youth and that youth will not drink until they are 21 years old. We had a very successful turnout with 316 individuals making the pledge. We wanted to take a quick moment to thank Cobblestone Car Wash, Tempe St. Lukes Medical Center, Edward Jones, and Tempe Chamber of Commerce for their support.
