Who's them?

Possible. You can get hepatitis from touching and eating food without washing your hands. So you might get something by sharing cigarette. I don't know how likely though.

Yes, Hepatitis A can be contracted this way. The other forms of Hepatitis are spread through bodily fluid contact. If you've exposed yourself to Hepatitis A by smoking a cigarette with someone who's been diagnosed, you can get a vaccination that will prevent you from developing symptoms if you act quickly.
