From wdrb.com: LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB)—Tobacco use, especially among young people in Kentucky, is higher in rural areas, due in part to more social acceptance of smoking and low tobacco taxes. That’s the conclusion of the American Lung Association report, “Cutting Tobacco’s Rural Roots: Tobacco Use in Rural Communities.”
Young people in rural communities are also more likely to start using tobacco earlier, and are twice as likely to use smokeless tobacco. 24.8 percent Kentucky’s adult population smokes and 41.62 percent lives in rural areas.
