Kentucky state properties to go tobacco free

The office of Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear announced Friday that all executive branch state property campuses will become tobacco-free effective Nov. 20.

A primary goal of Governor Beshear’s kyhealthnow initiative is to reduce smoking rates by 10 percent by 2019.

“Tobacco products have a deadly grip on thousands of Kentuckians. Smoking and tobacco use are the single-biggest causes of preventable illness and death in our state,” Beshear said. “This policy will protect non-smokers from the effects of secondhand smoke, and encourage tobacco users to seek help in quitting.”
