If they overdose or mix it with other drugs they may end up in casualty taking up scarce health care resources.  In practice, few things in life are entirely private and don't have (a sometimes severe) impact on others.

I think mountain climbing, boxing or other extreme ways of treating your body (joining the military comes to mind) comes closer to drugs, then speeding does. Then you have the direct bodily harm centered on the agent, though the risks are shared with those around.

Btw, professional boxing is outlawed in Sweden. No illegal market there (afaik), instead the boxers move. Mountain climbing is legal though.
