Should they not hire people who eat Big Macs? Should they not hire people who have a few drinks on the weekend? I wonder where all this is going, after seeing that Delray Beach is considering hiring only nonsmokers.

I think that this issue is totally rediculous. I have been busting my rear applying to police departments all over the state of Florida and now to hear that another department is only hiring non smokers is absolutely rediculous. The last application I filled out says that the applicant cannot have used a tabacco product in the past 24 months. I was in Afghanistan about 14 months and just statred filling out police applications when I got out of the service. How is this type of statement fair to myself when I have been a smoker for a long time? Even if I quit it still doesn't change the fact that I have used tobacco in the past two years. I did my job and did it very very well. I'm just tired of having my application denied for being honest on it about my tobacco use.
