Traffic Violation (3)

I have recently turned 18, and while I was driving home from college, I was forced to drive for my friend (it was his car). It was nighttime and I had just woken from a nap, so I was pushed into the driver seat and sleepily began to back out. As I was in the process of making a U-turn, I was pulled over, as I forgotten to turn on the headlights (he usually leaves them on). All my friends in the car had been smoking pot, and I had decided to stay completely sober for the drive. When the cop came up, I was taken out for possession of marijuana that wasn't mine, just because I was aware that it was there.

My question: will my car insurance go up? It was my first offense and the officer told me I was very polite. What are my chances? If my rates go up my parents are taking my license, so I'm scared out of my mind.

It will still count against you. Even if you haven't smoked pot, you will still be counted against it.
it's as if you were in a house with someone who had pot and didn't smoke it. You will still be counted against it, even if it's your first offense, it would be a felony.. perhaps you could get it dropped it down... but, your insurance will still go up.

This is a question for your insurance provider.
I doubt your insurance will go up if it's just a possession charge unrelated to driving.
You haven't mentioned a charge for no-headlights or maybe an illegal u-turn.
