Nevada Revised Statutes Section 176A.420 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Tests to determine use of controlled substance.

1. Upon the granting of probation to a person convicted of a felony or gross misdemeanor, the court may, when the circumstances warrant, require as a condition of probation that the probationer submit to periodic tests to determine whether the probationer is using any controlled substance. Any such use or any failure or refusal to submit to a test is a ground for revocation of probation.

2. Any expense incurred as a result of a test must be paid from appropriations to the Division on claims as other claims against the State are paid.
