I was arrested for "small possession of Marijuana", will I get drug tested in court?

Asked 4 months ago - Cheltenham, PA

I was arrested for "small possession of Marijuana" and I am 17 years old. I have a court date soon and was wondering if I will get drug tested? This is a first time offense. What do you think will happen? I live in Pennsylvania. I was charged with disorderly conduct.
