Tanning Ban for Minors Makes Headway in New York and New Jersey
Insert Jersey Shore joke here. Soon, kids on the boardwalk may no longer be able to artificially bake in Jersey. The New Jersey Assembly Health Committee passed a proposal forbidding eager young "juiceheads" under the age of 18 from tanning via bed on Monday, and the full Jersey Assembly will now vote on the matter, which Jersey Senate is also considering. A tanning ban for minors also recently passed in the New York State Assembly. We assume Snooki is outraged. Maybe John McCain will come to the rescue. [ABC]
