2. Good point
Obviously people who are dependent upon medication that has been precribed to them would probably be supplied with medication as soon as possible. Is there a way to check who has valid prescriptions when there is a huge diaster? I suppose that most things are computerized online, but what if they weren't?
As far as illegal drugs, I don't know if recuers are as sympathetic. Some of these people do have bad withdrawal symptoms though if they are without their drug for any length of time.
Certainly addicts who are also suffering from starvation and dehydration would be at increased risk of withdrawal symptoms turning fatal.
