California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed a bill Friday that will outlaw the retail sale of flavored tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes.

The ban is slated to go into effect Jan. 1 and is aimed at curbing the use of such products by young people, the Los Angeles Times reported. Supporters of the new law said that fruit, candy and menthol flavors make smoking and vaping more appealing to kids.
