A Michigan marijuana conviction is unlikely to affect your car insurance rates or coverage, unless the conviction involves driving under the influence of marijuana. Car insurance companies usually only raise rates or review your coverage for traffic-related convictions, while ignoring other convictions. However, a DUI (referred to as OWI in Michigan) involving marijuana may cause a substantial increase in your car insurance premiums. In the end, it is always up to the individual insurance carrier to determine if or how much your rates will be raised.
