There are some studies, particularly in child psychology, that show denying something makes it more enticing. The argument is moot anyway since he said "teens" and for the most part alcohol and tobacco are illegal for teens as well so in that sense they are on an equal playing field.

It's worth noting that these studies don't tend to focus on whether something is addictive or not. I'm not even sure who that has anything to do with it though, since something being addictive isn't the main draw in someone trying it for the first time. Personality traits and environmental pressures are why people do things or not.
