I was arrested while in another persons vehicle for possession of marijuana..it was a blunt rolled in the dash. Also, the officer didnt read me my rights. I was prepared for court but I was told its rescheduled for next month. Is that a good sign? And even though I was thrown under the bus that night, I don't want to take full responsibility. But I know that's going to be the chief argument. What's the best thing for me to do?

You need to retain a criminal defense attorney or have public defender appointed by the court if you cannot afford one. Having the matter rescheduled is neither good nor bad. It simply means that the prosecutor or the court had a conflict which needed to be worked around.

The fact that the case was rescheduled probably has nothing to do with the meris of the case. Clearly you need an experienced lawyer to assist you with this case since you were "thrown under the bus." Do not try to represent yourself as you may have a legal defense in your case that only an experienced lawyer will know to assert.
