No Tan For You

HoCo Exec Ken Ulman and his ever-creative Health Officer Peter Beilenson are proposing to ban teens from using tanning beds, according to a number of reports (here's a link to ExploreHoward).

The two plan a press conference Tuesday.

Brittany Lietz, a former Miss Maryland who believes her battle with skin cancer was caused by indoor tanning, also will speak at the event.

If the regulations are adopted, Howard County would become one of the first communities in the country to ban the use of the beds by minors.
