As reported in the Post On Politics blog , if you want to work for the Palm Beach County Tax Collector in Florida then you have to be a non-smoker.

Beginning tomorrow Anne Gannon will no longer hire applicants who admit to the use of tobacco products. If you want to be considered for a job interview you will need to submit a “non-smoking affidavit”.

Gannon Stated “Gannon: “There’s not much to be said for smoking – it’s a major cause of respiratory and circulatory disease, it contributes to increased insurance costs for us and the Palm Beach County tax payers, it’s unhealthy to be around, and expensive these days.”
