If you look younger than 30, happy hour and a pack of Marlboro Lights won't be the only reason to whip out that ID. State legislatures in Texas and Florida are pushing for new laws requiring teens under the age of 18 to bring a doctor's note to their local salons before stepping into the tanning bed.
Lawmakers view the new bills as ways to prevent teens from developing skin cancer, especially melanoma. Parents and teens alike are peeved by the new guidelines because they feel this is a decision that shouldn't be controlled by the government.
