Cigarette lighters that look like toys will be banned under a Mississippi bill that becomes law July 1.

The law takes effect July 1 and prohibits the sale of novelty lighters.

Supporters of the bill say the devices endanger children's safety.

The lighters can look like anything from toy frogs to tiny guitars. Many are sized to fit comfortably into toddlers' hands.
