    I'll make it clear.

    It is LEGAL to terminate someone for smoking in Utah.

    Boy, did I goof THAT up; I had in my mind that you were asking if it were legal. Sorry I led you astray by my momentary brain freeze.

    Since there is no law making it illegal, it would be legal for fire someone for smoking in your state.
