Signs that accurately state your hiring standards are okay.

As long as you are not, in fact, accepting applications and do, in fact, require applicants to pass a drug test, posting signs stating as much is both lawful and appropriate. You are allowed not to accept applications when you are not hiring, and you are allowed to condition employment on a successful drug screen. Therefore, commuincating this to potential applicants is both helpful and lawful.
