I just got a new co-worker. He was hired by my boss while I was on vacation. I know for a fact he is on drugs, but my boss is pretty clueless to this stuff. Should I say something?

Q#378 Danger in accusing someone w/o proof. Is person not doing job & is it affecting u? Stick 2 those facts. (@juliaerickson)
Q#378 U have to have evidence or witnessed the drug use. Otherwise, let the bosses evaluate/drug screen employees. (@resumeservice)
Q#378 Have you seen him doing drugs? If not, u can potentially harm his reputation and yours as well. (@DebraWheatman)
