Gov. Chris Christie signs New Jersey tan ban into law
Three years after a dermatologist staged an ultimately futile “tanning intervention” with the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” pasty white Gov. Chris Christie has signed a law barring minors under 17 from using tanning beds. The legislation also bans children under 14 from getting a spray tan, according to the Associated Press. Is Christie taking a necessary step to keep kids healthy, or is he playing catch-up with New York Gov. Cuomo, who signed similar legislation last year?

Wow, can’t believe Gov. Chris Christie (R-#NJ) signed that tanning bill. Why can’t people in NJ be allowed to make their own decisions?

I understand where Christie is coming from with the tanning how it’s bad & stuff, but that’s not our priority right now.. WHAT ABOUT TAXES?
