I suggest you consult with an attorney - there's no way to estimate the fines, fees, or any other punishment that will come with this case. If it was simply the speeding ticket, it would be an entirely different situation.
You need to consult with an attorney who practices in that Court. It is very likely that you will be eligible for a diversion program that will require you to complete lots of steps (such as a drug and alcohol evaluation, community service, random drugs screens, etc) but, if successfully completed, will result in the drug charge being dismissed.
