Marijuana and logical fallacies

There is one anti marijuana argument that drives me absolutely crazy.

Here is how the conversation goes.

Idiot: If your not addicted to marijuana then you can quit right now.

Me: I use it for medical reasons and do not want to but have and can if I need to:

Idiot: So you won't quit therefore it proves that you are addicted.

No it does not prove I am addicted. This argument proves you have no clue what your talking about. This argument is an example of circular reasoning and somewhat of begging the question. You could use this argument for anything. Television, food, driving, and even sex.

Try this, change marijuana with any activity you enjoy doing. Then read the argument with the new activity and realize how rediculous it sounds. It sounds just as rediculous to people who smoke marijuana.

This would have hit home a little harder if you had used "you're" correctly...but I totally agree. I COUKD stop...but I don't want to. Same as sex. Ask my hubby:)

BTW Pot isn't illegal everywhere.

You could stop but don't want to. Lol my marijuana pot head cousin has said that for 15 years. He's even been to jail for it. Wonder why he doesn't stop. Oh yeah, he's a moron.

After chasing around a little hellion all day I think I am allowed a few grammatical and punctuation mistakes :) As long as the argument itself is good.
