71 percent of Kentuckians support statewide public smoking ban

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Seventy-one percent of people in Kentucky support a statewide smoking ban for most public places, up five percent from last year.

The new poll from Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky comes in one of the country's largest tobacco producing states.

Kentucky currently leads the nation in the number of tobacco-related cancer cases per 100,000 people. But anti-smoking advocates say Kentucky's population of smokers and the state's long history of tobacco farming is working against them.
