Florida Prohibition on Hiring Smokers

Marion County, Florida, has enforced a ban on hiring smokers, an decision which some have called a civil rights issue. The county defends that this decision was made to keep health insurance costs down for all of its workers, and places the non-smoker requirement on its applications for county employment. Opponents feel that this is highly discriminatory and violates civil rights, proponents feel that it is a valid way to cut costs. What are your thoughts on the issue?
