Age Limit On Tanning Beds?

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - Should there an age requirement to hit the tanning bed?  Some Delaware lawmakers think so.

This week, the state Senate is set to discuss a bill that would make it illegal for people under 18 to use a tanning bed...regardless of whether there's parental consent.           

We went out to Dewey Beach to hear what folks think.

"I think the government should not be involved, but I think the parent should be," said Carol Dempsey.

Dee Dobson believes "under the age of 18 I think probably a good idea because they just don't know.  They don know that it could be harmful to them."

The tanning bed bill also makes warning labels mandatory on tanning beds in the First State.
