Give him the benefit of the doubt for now, but pay attention for signs, particularly if he smells like smoke. Even if he says it is just his friends, I would tell your parents because its better to get him out of it now, hopefully before addiction has taken too strong a hold. And remind him that he will regret it later, and that it is expensive--a stupid waste of money!
