There are currently 2 guys vaping in the conference room I am in.  Both are from Jackson, MS.
That's rough ridin' awful, but you're probably lucky they aren't pulling out marlboro reds.

It doesn't make a single smell

What are the laws w.r.t. vaping inside a workplace building?

 :dunno: every time I've been around them they have an odor, some worse than others.  But this was during a work meeting?  Was this meeting supposed to be super casual (meal?)?

It is not at all informal.

You'll have to take your family. She doesn't take single men (according to what I am reading on the flyer).

How could a certain medical condition make it so you have to smoke?  Or maybe I didn't understand what it said.

The stress of quitting could cause other health complications if they have been a long time smoker.

If your health is so bad that quitting smoking would actually make it worse, you should not get a premium award.

Yes, this is ridiculous, but I must amend the notice again:

Please note that with respect to the premium reduction for non-tobacco use, we will provide a reasonable alternative standard for any individuals who do not meet the otherwise applicable standard.  Contact human resources to obtain the alternative standard.  Recommendations of an individual’s personal physician will be accommodated.

The smokers in your office must be putting up a big stink about this.  Figuratively and also literally because of their clothes and breath.

My understanding was that there was some medical test to "prove" you are a non-smoker. (Like a stress test where you run on a treadmill???) And for people who do not smoke but are also unable to complete the test for medical reasons, they will give a waiver (or alternate standard).

There is no test to verify that someone is a non-smoker tobacco user.

Some hero must have told the company that quitting smoking was not good for their health.

My company once fired someone with cause. That person hired a lawyer. My company opted to let them come back to work rather than fight it. That person has been back at work for like two years.

Well that person is now untouchable. Could literally take a crap in the corner and they would probably do nothing.
