I'm an addict...
I could not stop drinking if my life depended on it...
I could stop smoking cigarettes in a flash, and have had many periods in my life where I've smoked for a fwe years then given up for a few years, then smoked for a nother year, and given up for another year... (my friends find that control over possibly one of the most addictive substances very strange).
yet, even if I wanted to try (which I don't), I could never possibly concieve never having another beer, or glass of wiskey, or rum.
as for addiction, you don't get addicted to the drug per-say you are addicted to the chemical inbalance, hence heroin users aren't adicted to heroin, cause they could easily use any other opiate, such as raw opium or methadon.
if there were a synthetic pot pill (like a pot based meth for pot addicts) then there would be a simillar effect, you wouldn't have to smoke to satisfy your addiction because you could happily take a pill instead. but make no bones about it, it is addictive, (not physically), but it is very phycologically addictive, I think this is partly because most people who are smoknig pot are doing it whilst having fun, so they soon get to see drugs and fun as synonymous with each other.
Anyway.. in a way you are both right, there is an addiction to the feeling, but the feeling is cause by the chemicals, (in this case tetrahydracaniboids -THC), so in a way you are addicted to the substance that contains the chemicals, i.e you are addicted to the drug.
to be honest you could both sit either side of that fence and argue the case till you die, I think each has merit, so I'll sit in the middle and asy you're addicted to the feeling caused by the drug that you're addicted to!

I doubt they meant to mess us about
true, I've never seen a stoned guy complain about anything... though I think that could be something to do with the fact they want to finish their business and moveon before anyone eralises they are stoned and calls the police or something...
