Issues concearning drugs

i was told once that if you are intoxicated with drugs and you are in a stable condition and you can realize that it is time for namaz and ALLAH is caling you to pray you are allowed to pray and i have also heard that if you are intoxicated you are not allowed to say anything from the QURAN so you can see where the confusion lies.

Taking Ghusal and Salaat issues.

Assalamu'alaikum to all.

Dear sir, i have 2 questions.

1: Whenever i take ghusal, i get evil and dirty thoughts in my mind although i try my best to keep it out. Is this okay? or must i take it with a clean mind?

2. During salaat, i too get some of these images and thoughts although i try my best to keep it out. Is it okay and i can carry on my prayers? or do i restart and do it with out thinking anything evil?

Assalamu'alaikum warahmathullahi wabarakathu
