2 New Laws Take Effect in West Virginia

Posted: Updated:

Two new state laws took effect Friday.

The first will cut down on "sexting" by making it illegal for anyone to possess or distribute nude or partially nude images of minors.

The second law bans anyone younger than 14 from using indoor tanning beds.

Children between ages 14 and 17 must have a written consent before tanning.

The law also authorizes local health departments to inspect tanning facilities.
