    Hey guys it's been awhile since I've logged in but since I've obtained my passport and twic card....
    I may become a felon though or end up with a 1st degree misdemeanor. If either happens can i keep my passport and twic card and would I still be able to haul hazmat?
    The felonies are two 4th degree counts...hoping to get a diversion ive never been in trouble.
    Would i be able to go to Canada with a 1st degree misdemeanor?

    Your Canada is at risk if you got either a Misdemeanor or Felony. You will be deemed criminally inadmissible by the Border Guards and denied entry.

    It depends on what the charges are as far as Canada goes, it does not even HAVE o be a felony in the US, to be one in Canada, the same way the other way around, what may be a felony here may not be one in Canada. As far as twic and hazmat, I am not sure, but I think you can keep your passport.
     
    x1Heavy and CruzControhl Thank this.

    If you already have your hazmat and twic, then you are probably ok until time comes to renew.
     
    x1Heavy and CruzControhl Thank this.
  5. Haz-mat has gotten very particular since 911 and Patriot Act. Consult a lawyer in your area not the jail house lawyers here.
     
    CruzControhl Thanks this.

    Things are going ok...ive read the tea website based off another thread. Basically I legally purchased a handgun and had it under the seat... Got pulled over and admitted to having it when asked.

    Good luck but if not then misdemeanor is still a lot better.
