There are esentially three kinds of issues, which I have not elucidated on:

Bioethical issues

Deontological issues

Teleological issues

Other than that:

Physical exploitation suggests that the operations in question are quite risky, and, taking place in third-world hospitals or "back-alleys," even more risky. Yet, if the operations in question can be made safe, there is little threat to the donor.

Financial exploitation suggests that the donor (especially in the Indian subcontinent and Africa) are not paid enough. Commonly, accounts from persons who have sold organs in both legal and black market circumstances put the prices at between $150 and $5,000, depending on the local laws, supply of ready donors and scope of the transplant operation.In Chennai, India where one of the largest black markets for organs is known to exist, studies have placed the average sale price at little over $1,000. Many accounts also exist of donors being postoperatively denied their promised pay.

The New Cannibalism is a phrase coined by anthropologist Nancy Scheper-Hughes in 1998 for an article written for The New Internationalist. Her argument was that the actual exploitation is an ethical failing, a human exploitation; a perception of the poor as organ sources which may be used to extend the lives of the wealthy.

Can a recovering druggie be an organ donor if he or she has been sober long enough?

Anybody can register as an organ donor. However, if you are asking whether your organs would actually be considered for use upon your death (assuming you died in a suitable way), there is nothing to rule you out from becoming an organ donor, so longs as your organs are still functioning and you do not have any significant medical problems (e.g any form of hepatitis, vCJD, HIV etc...)
