Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has signed legislation banning people under 21 from buying tobacco and nicotine products, a measure enacted in a state known historically for its tobacco production.

The law’s restrictions apply to cigarettes and liquid nicotine used in vaping devices and exempts active-duty military personnel.
