Laws are restricting our freedom. People should be able to do what they want if it is just affecting their own mental or physical health.

Your only argument being the idea of personal freedom, you've already dug your grave.
While laws such as the ones feeding into the war on drugs are harmful and hold greater dis-value than prosperity and freedom, not all laws fall into this category. For instance, with lawlessness, all men would hold the right to murder, commit rapacity, and rape. These crimes are not victimless and in fact take away personal freedom such as the right to life.
By invoking a state of lawlessness, you allow for a state of anarchy where no man is free, but constantly under the rule of fear of very real threat to life and well-being.
