In brief: Absolutely
Doing forensic pathology, we see it all the time.
What's even more treacherous, you don't even need to take a lot to have it kill you -- the same amount you've taken many times just to get high may on the 101st time trigger a heart rhythm disturbance and leave you dead or a vegetable.

In brief: Absolutely!
Cocaine, methaphetamine, dexadrine all can cause death.
Fatal arythmia, heart attack, and storke are the most common. Highly addictive, users increase there dose with time, bringing them closer to their mortality, not considering career ruined, legal problems, and home life destruction.
