LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The question of whether or not the Bullitt County Board of Health can impose a county-wide smoking ban is being considered by the state supreme court.

Justices heard arguments Thursday morning.

The ban was passed by the county's health department in 2011, but was never implemented after cities within the county sued to block the measure.

Last month radio ads hit the air -- encouraging businesses to go smoke-free.

The ad campaign was also in newspaper and movie theaters.
