Kentucky Gets All F's

Kentucky gets an F for not preventing tobacco-caused sicknesses.

The American Lung Association says the federal government, and most states, are failing to enact critical policy measures when it comes to tobacco. Those include higher taxes on cigarettes.

Kentucky was one of seven states that received all F's.

Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island received the best grades.

The Lung Association says tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of death in America.
