2 Your Health: Ohio City Gov't Looks to Go Smoke-Free; Robin Williams Enters Rehab

Updated:

A city government in Ohio is trying to go completely smoke-free.

Administrators in Toledo are putting a new rule into place.  It says the city won't hire any new employees who use tobacco.

Mayor Michael Collins says the policy will be implemented in the coming days. He says it will lower the city's health care costs.

This policy would not affect current city employees who are tobacco users.

A tobacco company spokesman told a toledo newspaper that refusing to hire people because they smoke is unfair and sets a dangerous precedent.
