Kentucky is the second biggest tobacco-producing state in the country, but recently banned all tobacco products on government properties for the sake of preventing smoking-related health issues.

“Smoking and tobacco use are the single-biggest causes of preventable illness and death in our state,” Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear said in a news release. “This policy will protect non-smokers from the effects of secondhand smoke, and encourage tobacco users to seek help in quitting.”

Beshear signed an executive order that prohibited smoking, smokeless tobacco, and e-cigarettes in over 3,400 state properties. This will take effect Nov. 20. Along with being one of the biggest tobacco producers in the U.S., Kentucky has the highest statewide percentage of smokers, with more than 28 percent of the population of adults smoking. The new order would bar over 5,000 of the 33,000 state employees who use tobacco products from damaging their health easily. However, the order won’t affect fairgrounds, state parks, or highway rest areas.

The order passed after CVS Caremark Corp. halted all sales of tobacco and even sped up the process to do so — becoming the first national pharmacy to stop selling cigarettes and tobacco products. The company announced its new name will be CVS Health. Though CVS will lose over $2 billion in revenue, CEO and President Larry Merlo believes that other national pharmacy chains should follow in their footsteps: “They need to, quite frankly, go through the same process that we went through in terms of asking the hard questions,” he said, according to Politico. “We saw a growing contradiction between selling tobacco and delivering health care in a retail environment.”
