California bans children under 18 from tanning beds

| No Comments

The state of California has introduced a new law that will prevent children under the age of 18 from using tanning beds, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

California is the first to introduce said law in the U.S., although Texas currently bans children under 16 from using tanning beds a report from the Associated Press says.

The current law in California states no children under 14 can use tanning beds, but 15-17-year-olds can with parental permission.

The new law takes effect Jan. 1.
