Teens in tanning beds: Yay or nay?

New York is currently considering a law that would ban minors from using tanning beds. Are you in favor?

i hate laws like this. There is a point when the government needs to back off and let parents make these desicions. I go to a tanning bed, me and my mom both know the risks and she signed for me. tanning is MY personal choice.

I think this law is a good idea. Although I'm kind of skeptical as to how much good it will do because if kids really want to tan, they can always just lay out in the sun. I don't use tanning beds and I never will.

Yes, I agree that they should be banned. They are very unsafe and unhealthy.

I dont think tanning beds are good but banning them for some people seems kind of harsh. It just seems weird where they would ban that but then still let you get birth control without requiring parental consent even if you are 12.

And that lady who was arrested for letting her 6 yo go with her was just plain scary looking.

Nay!If you want to have skin cancer fine go ahead.Not under 18 though.It's harmful and new studies show you can get addicted.The problem with parents having to give parental consent is that they don't know the risks or they did it as kids and nothing happened to them.In schools they have to beef up the skin cancer education in health classes so less kids have to deal with skin cancer

I think that tanning beds in general are a BIG no-no. It's giving you the WORST rays the sun has to offer, and you never know the dose your getting NOR do you know how clean they are. I actually think tanning beds are WORSE then regular tanning. I also think beautiful, clear, pale skin is better than a cliche'd tan.

okay so first: Yes, it IS the parent's responsibility to keep their kids from tanning.
But maybe tanning beds are a good thing. The world is so incredibly overpopulated, and so many people are getting cancer from tanning beds, maybe these things could help keep the population down. so I say, let teens tan.

Ikd where I stand, I know some people like tanning, But it's their decision. They should just be sure they are aware of what can happen and permission from parents

@trident7 Why would you do that to yourself?! Thats just gross! You're going to end up looking like a walking raisin, and trust me, a guy would rather have a pale girl than an orange one!
