It is a staw-man argument in that the OP is proposing that people who don't support legalizing marijuana support alcohol and tobacco, far more hazardous substances, essentially saying that we support those substances that are more deadly therefore our opinion is made invalid.

I would like to see the results of any study that suggests that addictive substances become less desirable if they become more readily available.

Also, smoking pot, drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco are not even remotely similar to driving a car. Driving a vehicle is a necessity for millions of people, it is entirely infeasible for me to trek 12 miles to work, 8 miles to the grocery store and 6-8 miles any time I feel like eating out.
