Why does God tell the people that they may buy "strong drink" and "whatever else" they desire?

How is this not promoting the sins of lust and drinking?

Deuteronomy 14:26

KJV - 26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household.
