In aboriginal tribes, or in man-hunting-man situations, natives and other land-familiar people find that there are plenty of signs in nature to indicate if there are people present. If a bird suddenly takes flight, then there is usually a human present. If a flock quickly rises from a lake or river where it had previously been contentedly resting, then there are people present. Other signs, including footprints, smells, smoke, broken bushes and tree branches, and matted ground or pine needles, indicate human presence, as well.
The truth is that, if you find more than two people in your business who are abusing substances, and they happen to be in the same department and you are fairly certain that they know each other, then the chances that one of them is distributing illicit substances to the other are pretty high.
For example, you might find that more than one person at a time usually test positive for alcohol abuse while at work. Chances are they share alcohol together during their break. If two or more employees test positive for the same type of drug, then either one of them is likely supplying the others, or they are all getting their drugs from the same person, perhaps near their workplace. If you are able to tell where the signs are and what the signs mean, you can stop the problem from spreading in the present, and keep it from reoccurring in the future.
Of course, if someone who was previously never high or drunk suddenly shows up to work under the influence of drugs or alcohol, their coworkers will probably gossip about it. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. There are people present on these hunting grounds.
