Things That Used to Be Legal

Just in case anyone thinks I just talk out of my bazooki, here is some unfortunate vindication of the predictions I make on this blog.

Here is something I wrote when I first introduced the "Things That Used To Be Legal" blog feature:
Given current governmental trends, I have no reason to believe that one country's or state's ruling is independent of another's. In other words, as soon as one government makes something illegal, the others will soon follow suit.
And here is something I read at CBC.ca today:
Children and teens under the age of 18 should be banned from using commercial indoor tanning beds, the Canadian Paediatric Society says. 
In a position statement published on Friday, the group called for laws to keep minors out of tanning facilities because of a "serious cancer risk."
 For reference, see my post on tanning beds here.
