No. All they can do on a conditional release violation is to change your conditions of release. If it's instead a probation violation, then the violation could lead to up to the maximum sentence. You should stop with these online Q&A forums and talk to your own lawyer instead.
It sounds like you're asking whether the State can charge you with an additional drug possession offense for having the Vicodin in your system, or somehow use the fact that you had Vicodin in your system to pressure you into pleading guilty to the meth charge. The answer is "no." Having the Vicodin in your system was (apparently) a violation of your conditional release only.
