In the state of Colorado, if you are charged with possession of cocaine, the police will do preliminary testing–presumptive drug testing–on the sample to determine if it is cocaine or not. Then they will take the sample and send it to CBI if it’s a state case, and CBI will perform an analysis on the drug. They will weigh it, they’ll test it, and they’ll issue a report on it.
