Safe Cigarette Law Update

One bill that Governor Fletcher has already signed into law is the sell of fire safe cigarettes. Only cigarettes that extinguish themselves when dropped or left unattended will be allowed to be sold in Kentucky.

This means conventional cigarettes which have been blamed for a number of house fires over the years would essentially be banned in one of the nation’s top tobacco-producing states.

California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, Utah and Vermont have similar laws. As always stay connected to wbko.com for the latest on what state legislators are working on.
