New ad campaign urges Kentucky to go smoke-free

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky is known for horse racing and basketball, but also for smoking and lung cancer.

That's the pitch of a new advertising campaign which will urge Kentucky to go smoke-free.  Several health care groups have banded together and will spend $93,000 on new advertisements.

The groups are pushing for a statewide smoking ban.  The Centers for Disease Control reports 29 percent of all Kentucky adults smoke, compared to 19 percent nationwide.
