That's what teenagers do. You are the parent and you need to make sure they treat you with respect.
She is still a minor and until she is an adult you are responsible for her.
She has obviously gotten away with things in the past, this sort of behaviour doesn't just start overnight. She knows that she can do what she wants and won't listen to you. She has learned that over the years.

Obviously taking her phone isn't working.
You need to put tougher consequences in place.
Ground her, don't let her out of the house, watch her 24/7.

Taking her phone from her. I found out tonight her boyfriend does smoke pot too. My husband is always saying trust her she is a good girl. Basically fighting me to discipline her.

What discipline have you had in place up until now?
How is she getting drugs?
She wouldn't all of a sudden started this behaviour, so what have you allowed in the past. Why won't she listen to you?
