What to do about a minor in possession charge followed by random drug tests?

I’m 18 and was arrested on school grounds for minor in possession of marijuana that they found in my car which was not even mine. I have been told that the arresting officer is going to suggest in court that my charges be deferred for 6 months. I have also been told that the police can randomly drug test me over the next 6 months while my charges are deferred. Can they do this?
