Since there is no way to predict how that infraction might impact you in the future (when it shows up on a background check for a job, an apartment, or even if you want to volunteer to take your kid on a school field trip) I would certainly go contest it. Paying the fine is probably not the biggest thing; but lots of people still have very negative opinions about marijuana use, particularly in a car. You don't want that on your record.
