Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

It is not possible to say whether the smell which you have described is due to any specific drug use. Your description of the smell is very vage and moreover, there is no established connection between any specific smell and any type of drug use.

The other details which you have mentioned like coming late for work and taking a couple of days off here and there are not specifically indicative of anything and your speculations don't have any valid basis. So, I think it is better not to make strong judgement people based on these trivial facts.

Wish you all the best.
