It is possible to get pregnant from unprotected penetration -- it only takes one sperm to meet the egg, and they're very hardy little swimmers. I don't know whether pot lowers sperm count, but that's pretty much irrelevant -- unprotected sex is risky and carries the chance of pregnancy no matter what.
Sperm are present in pre-ejaculate (precum), which means that even if your partner did not ejaculate inside you, you are still at risk for pregnancy.
In addition, you and your partner also put yourself at risk for STDs by having unprotected sex.
First of all, whether or not he pulled out, or smokes weed, or anything, you had unprotected sex. Even if you were not at risk for pregnancy, you were at a very high risk for STDs.
Secondly: Precum can impregnate you. It is just a little bit less of the same stuff which comes out in final ejaculation.
Thirdly: marijuana has been found to have various negative effects on male fertility but that does not in any way negate the risk . If you think that marijuana is a form of birth control...well, the short answer is that you are wrong.
I'm sorry for being blunt here, but you need to know the facts, and since you already had a suspicion about precum you really didn't have any excuse, but now you know the reality of the situation. My advice would be to, at the very least, get tested for STDs asap.
