I'd take the car back and/or make him buy it from you

One of them fancy lawyers might not have too hard of a time connecting the dots to dad's money if your son gets in an accident and hurts somebody.

If a civil case about negligence still only has a "more probable than not" burden of proof; and if your son hurt someone driving your carl; then if a prosecuting attorney could show it was more probable than not that you were negligent for allowing your son - with a history of being arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana - to drive your car...well, you could be in for a big bill that you don't want.

(I'm no lawyer, so maybe that's crazy talk - but if I were the victim, you can bet your bottom dollar I'd hire a lawyer who barked up all the trees, including this one.)

All of that cover-your-butt advice aside: I hope your son gets things straight, and that this is the last issue he has of this kind. Seriously, I hope he grows up and that his life (and yours) gets better from here on out.

Best of luck to you and your boy, sincerely.
