pulled for speeding, car search, small amount of marijuana

My son was recently pulled in Nashville N.C. with a friend who was going 5 miles over the speed limit. The officer then asked permission to search the car. Not knowing their rights they said yes. The officer then found a very small amount of pot ( less than 1/8) in a zip lock bag in my sons overnight bag. He then gave him a citation to appear in court on Aug. 2nd. He told him he was more than likely looking at an hour lecture along with a 250.00 fine. Could you please advise me if this is correct and if it would be in his best interest to hire an attorney. He has never even had a traffic violation in Va. much less N.C and is of 18 years of age by 2 weeks.

Thank you.
