Fire him for being late. Don't agonize over the decision, just do it

I agree about firing him. Drugs or not, being late on someone else's clock is a big no-no. But then again, you have to think about your safety and your equipment when you go to firing an someone with an opiate addiction. They will literally rob you blind, your blowers, trimmers, everything on the trailer when fired. Someone addicted to heroin is VERY, VERY dangerous. When I was in high school, I had an "ex-friend" that was caught up with the heroin stuff and selling it. I left his house one night with my last words telling him he needed to leave that stuff alone and be better then that. (I knew his family growing up and they didn't raise him like that.) Needless to say, he was found dead the next morning after I left his house. One of his heroin addicts came in and robbed him blind, shot him three times, and he will never see life again. If you have someone caught up with heroin, do some reading on their behaviors and before you go to making any decisions, even firing him, do some home-work it can be more serious of an issue then you think.

Opiates is a whole different ballgame brothers...

And indeed it is opiates because the op mentioned something about pills...
