"I pleaded with my son not to do drugs" OR "I pleaded with my son to not do drugs".

The "to do" verb here is simply "to do'. When you want to indicate that something should not be done, you should place the negative (the word "not" in this case) in between: "to not do". In some cases, you can also write "not to do", but this depends on the sentence.
