You're still being abused by some producer/seller. This is where freedom is impaired in quite a subtle way. It happens continuously, of course, and is a slippery slope. For example, my own limit in freedom of choice lies somewhere between THC and cocaine. This opinion is formed by my culture, as the former is considered a "soft" drug and the latter a "hard" drug. Incidentally, my culture is another one of those subtle impairments of my freedom.
