California is banning smoking in state parks and beaches. A new law signed Sunday bans smoking at the state's roughly 280 parks and 340 miles of coastline.

It also bans disposing of cigars and cigarettes in the same places.

Violations of the law will be punishable by a fine of up to $25.

It includes smoking traditional cigarettes as well as using electronic smoking devices.

Smoking will still be allowed in parking lots at beaches and parks.
