    Any parent that would LET their child use a tanning bed needs to be fined $1,000 imo.

    No. I think the parental requirement for a minor over 14 is fine.

    But this makes me wonder if the Guidos and Guiettes in The Jersey Shore are beginning to influence legislation? :eusa_think:

    I suggest letting the parents decide whether they let their children tan.

    I'd rather see my kids tan than get tattooed or pierced, and here in NJ, teens can get one with parent's permission. In fact, I believe there is no age limit with parental consent. Hypocritical if you ask me.

    We are the nanny state. You name any possible societal problem or issue, and our "caring" lawmakers will legislate it. They just love getting their names in the paper.

    In this economy, (and with the new tanning tax), it is irresponsible for lawmakers to punish local businesses. Getting sick of it.

    Bull.

    getting a light tan is healthy. We need sunlight to manufacture vitamin D

    Prom time is probably the Christmas of the tanning industry. Sheez.
