OD on Meth? Why not sue your dealer?

Sandra Bergen did it and won her lawsuit. She is currently waiting for the judge to determine what amount the damages should total.

Apparently this 23 year old Canadian had a heart attack and spent 11 days in a coma after taking crystal meth. She claimed that the dealer knew it was addictive and dangerous yet sold it to her for the purposes of making money and intentionally inflecting emotional and physical suffering. His defense was that it was voluntary. However, he lost when he refused to give up the name of his connection to the judge.

I'm not entirely sure why that would be enough to make him lose in a civil case. But I guess if you have got a source -- you've got a source.
