I remember watching Pumping Iron (1977) and I was only young when I saw it.

At the end of the film, there was a scene where Arnold and his colleagues are chilling in a room and celebrating Lou Ferrigno's birthday, during which Arnold lets loose and has a smoke.

Being young, I assumed this was a tobacco cigarette, but later (recently) I heard that it was actually a Marijuana "joint".

Did Arnold smoke tobacco or marijuana in Pumping Iron?

Yes, it's pretty much common knowledge that Arnold was a marijuana user. Here is a bit about him admitting it was marijuana:
