BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts’ governor signed into law today a groundbreaking ban on the sale of flavored tobacco and vaping products, including menthol cigarettes.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s signature makes Massachusetts the first to enact a permanent statewide ban, anti-smoking groups said.

It immediately bans the sale of flavored vaping products and will outlaw sales of menthol cigarettes starting June 1, 2020.
