California's ban on flavored tobacco went into effect Wednesday after the Supreme Court denied a bid by the tobacco industry to block the measure.

California's ban on flavored tobacco went into effect Wednesday.

This comes after the Supreme Court rejected a bid last week by the tobacco industry to prevent the state from enforcing the law.

Under the new law, flavored tobacco for e-cigarettes, menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars can no longer be sold in stores.

State voters approved the ban when they voted for Proposition 31 in November.
