Marijuana convictions in Pennsylvania are unlikely to affect your car insurance, unless the conviction relates to driving under the influence of marijuana. This is simply because car insurance carriers often don’t care about convictions unless they are for traffic-related offenses (like speeding tickets or DUIs). But a Pennsylvania marijuana DUI will likely make your rates go up, or your coverage may even be dropped, depending on the policies of your individual insurance carrier.

For more information on the insurance consequences of being convicted of a DUI, see the article How a DUI Affects Your Car Insurance.
