i smoked for 41 years i stopped 10 years ago. smelling cigarette smoke stinks but this is going too far.. if they can lump nicotine with other\ drugs and do tests for it then they ought to arrest tobacco makers as drug pushers
What about stop manufacturing them and stop selling them, plain and simple!

Anyone who has EVER smoked pot. ( They've shown poor decision making right?)Anyone who has ever used illegal drugs. EVER! ( Addictive behavior doesn't just go away does it?.) Rollerbladers. Skiers. (Including water ski) Hunters Folks with pools in their yards unless manned by a 24/7 security system company.Also those who swim in salt water. "Jaws?" Drownings? Duh?People with depression, even under Dr care. ( Might be illegal. Find a fake reason to fire)Anyone who drives. ( Tens of thousands of these die young every year.)Gun owners.

try that **** to a union member the union would sue ass.
damn m-f'ers. getting sick and tired of people being treated like war criminals for smoking.
God I hope they get hit with a giant lawsuit lose and go bankrupt I am so god dam tired of politicians and corporate america trying to tell people what they can and can't do with their own bodies. Your dam insurance companies make billions of dollars and pay out roughly 3% in claims whats wrong with this picture.
I would think that this policy is both deflamation and decremination.
smokers smell -
I just made a decision - I will buy no car made in Flint. Michigan. I bet they hire: obese, overweight, people with high cholesterol and meat-eaters. Meat-eaters (beef) have higher incidence of heart attack from cholesterol filled arteries and higher incidence of colon cancer. A lot of diabetics are because of what they eat. Obesity we pay dearly for in high blood pressure, stomach stapling, weight loss programs, heart problems. Obesity has been linked to certain cancers.They should be sued for discrimination. Unless they stop hiring ALL high risk groups they are being allowed to practice discrimination.
They should really check for people who drink also. They are the ones who will hurt others and themselves.
