Construction Applications

We are having problems hiring employees that are NOT passing their drug tests. We are drug testing everyone that works in our yard, but I need some guidance as to what I might can put on our application that would eliminiate us paying for drug testing and applicants failing. Example--we reviewed current application and sent applicant for drug test, later found out he had back problems and was taking over 120 prescribed pills/month for back injuries. Due to this, he could not fulfill the duties required of him, driving-safety-lifting-etc. and we had to let him go.

I know that ADA will not let us ask what medications they are taking, and if you ask the usual "is anything prohibiting you from lfting, driving, etc. all answer YES even though that is not true! Do you have any ideas that we might could put on our application to prohibit excessive drug screening?
