It depends on the court and the laws which govern the powers of the court. In many cases, yes, a court can make an order that a drug test be carried out (it is unlikely that this would be conducted actually in the court room itself). However, if the court court make an order to obtain evidence under subpoena for someone to take a drug test assuming that the laws of evidence in the jurisdiction of the court allowed this. An example is that in California, in child custody cases, under strict statutory conditions, the court may order any person seeking custody or visitation to undergo testing for the use of illegal controlled substances (as defined in Health & Saf.C. § 11000 et seq.) or alcohol; and may order either or both parties to pay the costs of such testing. [Fam.C. § 3041.5]
