Tobacco Act too harsh (Bhutan)
Everybody in the country knows it is however too harsh but he should have given second thought in 2010 while discussing in the parliament. Now after making so many people criminal without doing any real crime, this is biased. Had it been really worrying him about current tobacco act or worried about forthcoming election?
Warning: Smoking May Cost You A Job
Tobacco-users have steadily been pushed away from bars, restaurants, parks and even college campuses.
Now, some companies want to get rid of smokers in the workplace. But it's against the law in South Carolina, as well as in 28 other states that ban discrimination against tobacco-users.
"It is not government's role to tell a business owner how they operate their business and how they spend their money," said Sen. Kevin Bryant, R-Anderson.
That protection for smoker could soon be repealed if Bryant's measure is passed.
The lawmaker believes companies should be able to hire or fire workers that use tobacco products off-the-clock.
