Will my case get thrown out since I never signed any paperwork saying that I was being charged and the charge was written after the fact?

Question Details: I was pulled over for speeding and got charged for simple possession of marijuana. I didn't know I was charged until I went to pay the speeding ticket. I never signed anything saying that I was being charged, in fact the day I was pulled over the police officer said and I quote, "You are not being charged with anything". I went to court and the assistant district attorney said that the charge was written after the fact. He said that if I pass a urine test then he would drop the charge. I didn't pass but as far as I know the urine sample was thrown out and now I have a preliminary hearing next week. I want to know if the case will be thrown out and what I can expect is going to happen when I go into the court room.
