Default DNA testing on a piece of hash ( marijuana )



i realise this is a serious forum but i really need advice from some people who know what they are talking about so i hope u will forgive my intrusion and give this question a serious answer ( this is NOT a joke question )

i need to know what the chance is of the police forensics finding an identifiable dna profile from a small piece of hash that has been handled by someone.........the piece is only the size of a medium sized coin so we are not talking serious crime here but unfortunatey the country this has occured in does not issue a small fine and wave u on your way.the police are now involved and are saying they are sending it to be dna tested

i believe the hash was also handled by another person after my friend touched it,but this person is not in the frame

any advice given here is most appreciated......thank u

please do not double post, and also bump your topic

depends on several things including the presence of fibres which can be examined microscopically (clothes etc), hair and skin cells which can be examined by dna methods
