Twenty nine states plus the District of Columbia have what are often called smokers’ rights or smoking protection laws. Why do we have these laws because legislators in 29 states don’t want to prohibit off-duty conduct that is legal.
As long as tobacco and alcohol are legal there shouldn’t be any discrimination against people who are not doing anything illegal, nor should obese individuals be penalized. Without it the health nannies could branch out to high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, cancer or any other disease that would cost the companies more money for health care coverage.
This legislation should be in all 50 states, not just 29.
