There are laws in place in the state of Idaho to keep us safe:

  • You're not allowed to murder somebody
  • Speeding in a motor vehicle is illegal
  • You will go to prison if you sell drugs to children

You know, typical rules to keep us in line, right?

Well, while this next rule seems like it'd be in our best interest, wouldn't it be crossing the line just a little bit?

Keep Scrolling: Should Sunscreen Be Legally Mandated In Idaho?

Sun's Out, Shades On: A Look Back at Eclipses Through the Ages

The United States is set to witness a historic total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. Before you put on your safety glasses to look up, let's look back at the eclipses of the past.

First of all, why do we even need to wear sunscreen? Isn't it just a marketing ploy? Not according to Johns Hopkins University:

Wearing sunscreen is one of the best — and easiest — ways to protect your skin’s appearance and health at any age. Used regularly, sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, skin cancer and premature aging.

So should officials in Idaho make it a legal requirement for citizens to lather on some SPF before they step outside? How would you even prove if someone is wearing sunblock or not? Would there be mandatory "Sunscreen Screenings" happening by police?

Sure, it'd probably save a lot of us from skin issues down the road, but isn't it a check to see if every single citizen is currently wearing sunscreen? Could you even go far as to say it's a violation of first amendment rights? Let us know.

P.S. Even if it's not the law, you should still wear it. Yes, even in the winter. If the sun is out, you should have sunscreen on. So your skin stays cute.
