Kentucky smokers wanting to quit may be eligible for free medication

Kentucky smokers wanting to quit may be able to get free help.

Quit Now Kentucky will be offering a free starter supply of nicotine replacement therapy medication to those who qualify while supplies last.

Adults and teenagers as young as 15 can apply.

Enrollment begins April 27th and runs through May 10th. To sign up for the program call 1-800-QuitNow (1-800-784-8669).
