it is understandable that employers want to cut risks
and since it is fairly easily to establish that someone smokes (if you can't smell it you can tell it by looking at their teeth 99% of the time) this makes smokers an easy target
you don't need to invade someone's private life to tell that he/she smokes

does that make it right for an employer to discriminate against smokers though?
by no means
it could even set a dangerous precedent

“Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.”
