This is what needs to start happening. People standing up to Lifestyle Discrimination, hiring a Lawyer and standing up for their rights. Enough fukin bullshit.

I Googled "Discrimination in the workplace smokers" and came up with this site.

Investigation Concerning Termination of Smokers And/Or Charging Smokers Higher Healthcare or Disability Premiums.

"In 30 states and the District of Columbia, state law makes it illegal for companies to impose smoking bans on their employees when they are off duty. In addition, the federal employee benefits law, ERISA, prevents employers from discriminating against and/or firing employees, here smokers, to interfere with the attainment of any right under a benefit plan, here the right to health benefits."
