California Bans Teens from Using Tanning Beds

It’s official…. Or at least, the California Governor Jerry Brown is finally making it official. 

Children and teenagers under the age of 18 are no longer allowed to use tanning beds.  We’ve all known (hopefully) for some time now, that tanning beds are seriously dangerous to your health, and have hopefully kicked the bed habit long ago.  After all, there’s really nothing less fashionable than skin cancer don’t you think?  But the news about bronzing your buns in a bed may have alluded teens, so I for one am happy that our California government has stepped in.

The law will go into effect January 1, 2012 and honestly, not a moment too soon. 

Are you satisfied with the new law?
