A law that raises the minimum age to buy tobacco products went into effect in California on Thursday. The state is the second in the nation, after Hawaii, to implement an age requirement of 21 to buy tobacco.

One exception to the law is for military personnel, who can buy cigarettes if they are age 18 or older with an ID card.

Some veterans groups opposed the law, saying people old enough to serve in the military should be allowed to buy tobacco products. Tobacco companies kept a low profile in the debate over the measure, according to the Associated Press.
