After finishing the Final Destination movies, tanning beds will always make me think of a really painful way to die.

The funny thing is they had to ban.

Good. If you've ever seen anyone die of skin cancer you would NEVER do that to yourself.

How many years have we been warned about skin cancer? It's about time something was done.

Tanning is stupid. It harms your body. I love my pale skin I take good care of it ^_^. I would never go to a tanning salon.

the health risks justify it--especially since parents are permitted to authorize with some of the legislation--just not a stand alone teen decision

I wish people were educated enough to not bake themselves. Then we wouldn't need a law. >_

I've been living in Florida for 3 year and I'm still wondering about those tanning-saloons they have.
