New Jersey Bans Those Under 17 from Tanning Salons


Here's a story in the news this week.  Following the well-known case of the mom who was alleged to have brought her 5 year old daughter to a tanning salon where the girl allegedly sustained a sunburn, the State of New Jersey has imposed the new ban against those under 17 from tanning in salon machinery.  Spray tans are also regulated. See http://news.msn.com/us/after-tanning-mom-nj-bans-children-from-tanning-beds .

Mom denies putting her daughter into a tanning bed and claims the sunburn came through more natural causes (i.e. being outside in the sun too long). 

What law could follow next?
