What have, and do, politically-motivated writers say about the drinking and drug use in important, nationally lauded works when a new political era is not as accepting as previous eras?

I'm specifically interested in the machinations of the Islamic and Chinese Cultural Revolution, though I am also more generally interested in every country's similar experience. I'd like to know how *The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám* and the work of Li Bai fared. Also, does *The Black Book of Communism* go into this subject?
