Support for smoke-free law in Kentucky continues to grow; 7 in 10 favor a ban

According to the 2013 Kentucky Health Issues Poll (KHIP), nearly 7 in 10 Kentucky adults (65 percent) favor a statewide smoke-free law, while fewer than 3 in 10 (29 percent) oppose such a law. Support for a law has consistently increased since the Kentucky Health Issues Poll first started asking the question in 2010. Northern Kentuckians are similar to the Commonwealth in support for a smoke free law. Twenty-six states and the District of Columbia have comprehensive smoke-free laws; Kentucky does not.
