Better to know what we don't want to know than deny it, or have it kept from us. When it comes to substance use, parents can't control their teenager's choice, but they can inform it. The teenager doesn't have our blessing to use, but if they choose to use then by discussing how to (relatively)safely use we may help them moderate the risks. Now the best to hope for is the teenager's willingness to discuss episodes of use so we can help them learn from experience we wish they didn't have.
