Discrimination or Good Business?

This announcement is proudly display at the bottom of job posting.
Effective August 1, 2011, Saint Luke’s Health System no longer hires individuals who use tobacco products. By submitting this Application for Employment, you represent and agree (1) you do not currently use any tobacco product and (2) if employed by the System, you will not during that employment use any tobacco product. Use of a tobacco product during employment with the System is grounds for immediate termination of employment.

Although tobaaco is a legal substance in the USA, it has been identified as a major source of rising health care cost and descreased productivity in the workplace. Surely that gives credibility to this type of employment policy.
