Indiana Considering Banning Teens From Tanning

Last updated on Friday, August 23, 2013

(UNDATED) - Indiana may join the list of states banning teenagers from using tanning beds.

On Wednesday, Bloomington dermatologist Dr. Carrie Davis testified to the Health Finance Commission that melanoma is the second most common cancer for people 15 to 29-years-old.

Current state law says anyone under the age of 18 must have written permission from a parent to tan and those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
