I can speak from experience. After being on a week long diet of blow or opiates, your decision making isn't at its peak. I've actually handed out drugs and booze at my home game. TAG to LAG in a couple of lines.

NO because it doesn't matter. No poker player has an advantage while on drugs. Anyone else at the table can take them, who's stopping them. I take adderall all the time and can say it only helps for long sessions but its hard to be on adderrall and staying in one place for 10 hours.

What about Modafinil? It is supposed to promote wakefulness and mental alertness without the side effects of speed or caffeine. I've always wanted to try it, but it's being regulated as a controlled substance at this point.

If you read the Slate magazine article about it, it is postulated that this drug will eventually be everywhere and used as a food and drink additive the way caffeine is now.
