After conducting a vehicle search, the officer allegedly found a backpack with a green leafy substance appearing to be marijuana.
The officer also reported finding marijuana wax.
Johnson allegedly admitted that the substance was in fact marijuana.
If convicted, Johnson faces up to five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
