The Fireworks Laws of Every State

Illustration for article titled The Fireworks Laws of Every State

If you were curious exactly how much fireworks fun you're legally allowed to have tomorrow—or how far you'll have to travel to buy the good stuff—look no further than this handy map of state-by-state fireworks legality. UPDATED:

While you can use this as a general guide, it's important to note that laws can vary even within states, so it's worth double-checking to make sure your booms don't bring the heat. Otherwise, happy and safe explosions to you all tomorrow, assuming you don't live in the draconian Northeast.


UPDATE: Rhode Islanders, rejoice! State officials granted a reprieve (PDF) a few weeks ago, meaning that you, too, can safely enjoy the glimmering white-hot danger of ground-based fireworks. [Buzzfeed, Thanks Sean!]



After this week.
