    State bans use of tanning beds by minors

    State bans use of tanning beds by minors

    Reuters - Minors in the state of California will no longer be allowed to use tanning beds after Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill on Sunday prohibiting anyone under the age of 18 from using ultraviolet tanning devices.

    California is the first state in the nation to ban minors from using tanning beds, legislators said.

    Previously, California had banned minors under the age of 14 from using tanning beds, but allowed those between 14 and 18 years of age to use tanning beds with parental consent.

    The bill was part of a cluster of legislation signed on Sunday designed to "improve the health and well-being of Calfornians," according to a statement from the Governor's office.

    "I praise Gov. Brown for his courage in taking this much-needed step to protect some of California's most vulnerable residents -- our kids -- from what the 'House of Medicine' has conclusively shown is lethally dangerous: ultraviolet-emitting radiation from tanning beds," the bill's sponsor, state Senator Ted Lieu, said in a statement.

    "If everyone knew the true dangers of tanning beds, they'd be shocked. Skin cancer is a rising epidemic and the leading cause of cancer death for women between 25 and 29."

    The law will go into effect on January 1, 2012, according to Lieu's office.

    And lesbian parents can give their son hormone shots to stop him from physically maturing, but they're not allowed to take him to a tanning salon.

    Liberal logic for the fail.

    that's fine they can go to the beach or pool and burn the shit out of themselves rather than tanning safely in a tanning bed.

    at least that won't cause a global banking collapse like bank deregulation for sub-prime lenders did in 2007 thanks to GWB and his super awesome economic expansion that INCREASED the poverty rate during his presidency...in the past 40 years the ONLY thing the GOP has done for the working class is the continuing opening up of credit markets to get the people more in debt. it's what they did in the 80's and the 2000's...

    If they let minors drive and play sports then they can go tanning too!

    I was just thinking about how wonderful California is doing with their resources... fucktards.

    I'm not an expert, but don't they have trouble meeting their fiscal obligations? Focussing legislative resources here doesn't make sense to me. But what do I know?

    Are you guys kidding me? This is a good thing. These things are way more dangerous than lying in the sun, and kids honestly don't have the maturity for shit nowadays because of horrible parenting. People getting skin cancer early = higher insurance premiums for us and people who tan responsibly.

    people fail to acknowledge that tanning in a bed is at least monitored somewhat in that a person knows how long they're getting uv rays.....when in the sunlight most people don't pay attention to the amount of time they're in it.....tit for tat......tanning in a bed IS safer than sunlight in this case (if monitored for exposure)......

    but this is a racist ban anyway.....dark people don't need the extra exposure....light colored people need it for the vitamin from the uv

    I don't see how more laws and regulation are ever really a good thing.

    Agreed. I'd rather have my tax dollars spent on something worthwhile. Sick of hearing about budget shortfalls when money is being spent on bullshit regulation. How about this; regulate derivatives, regulate what goes in my food, regulate banks, but don't waste resources regulating what people do to themselves.

    You can die from taking too much vitamin a, don't see a fucking senate hearing on regulating vitamin sales.
