Can There be Anything More Disgusting Than This Starbucks Drink?
I am the first to admit that I don't necessarily like every type of coffee drink that comes from Starbucks, or any other coffee shop for that matter. Some of the orders that people make are so complicated. And honestly, how did you even discover that you wanted whatever half pump of anything along with whatever 5 different types of coffee and extra special milk and on and on? There had to be that first time that you ordered something and thought hmmm.... maybe this would be better with a half pump of sugar free tasteless syrup that costs an extra $2.

Iowa Is One Of The States Working Hardest To Quit Vaping
Vaping is a dangerous habit and Iowans really want to quit. Vaping is a super popular way for the youth nowadays to "smoke". The National Institute on Drug Abuse defines vaping (or e-cigarettes) are battery-operated devices that use aerosols that often contain nicotine.
