It's finally summer, which means celebrations with Fourth of July fireworks are just around the corner, along with barbecues and pool parties! But with fireworks comes the age-old question: "What's actually legal in my state?" It's a tricky proposition, with each state having a unique list of what types of explosives you can and can't use at home. Some require licenses to operate anything that makes sparks, while in other states, a 12-year-old can stroll down to the neighborhood superstore and buy a roman candle. It's confusing, to say the least.
Luckily, ForRent created this handy guide. It's got a helpful state-by-state breakdown of exactly what is legal, from poppers to fountains and rockets. And of course, it also includes some of the weirder and funnier state laws governing the sale of fireworks.
So get out there and start lighting stuff on fire! Just be very, very careful.
