U-Haul to stop hiring nicotine users in 21 states

Published January 3, 2020

The Washington Post reported on the announcement by U-Haul that the company will implement a nicotine-free policy and no longer hire smokers in states that don’t have protections for smokers’ rights. The article quoted Lynn Kozlowski, who argues it’s important to make distinctions between the most harmful nicotine-laced products, such as cigarettes and cigars, and items such as smokeless tobacco and vaped nicotine products that pose a lower risk to bystanders.
