YES, it is a standard condition of probation when you are convicted of a drug offense that you be required to “drug test” on a random basis as required by your probation officer. If you were to come back with a “dirty test” the probation office can arrest you and file a probation violation against you. You would likely remain in custody pending the probation violation hearing. The judge would then have the power to impose a lengthy jail sentence or could place you back on probation on the same of different terms. The judge also has the power to extend your period of probation for a longer period of time.
