Some states prohibit employers from discriminating against smokers.
I just got turned down for a job. The interviewer asked me whether I smoke. I answered honestly that I do, although I've tried several times to quit. The interviewer apologized, told me the company doesn't hire smokers, and suggested that I reapply once I've kicked the habit. Is this legal?
