It depends a lot on which county his charges are in. It might be (in most counties) the charge will be reduced. It will depend a lot on the results of his blood test (if he took one) as that will show if "active THC" was in his system. If so, it will be a battle that he is better off having a lawyer fight for him. He definitely should at least consult a lawyer and learn what his options are.
