Michigan Relaxes Fireworks Laws

This Fourth of July is going to be more explosive than ever. No more driving to Ohio and Indiana to buy the fireworks necessary for a grand finale at home. You’ll finally be able to buy them in Michigan.

Blowing stuff up is our God given right as Americans.  The Simpsons had it right when they told us to ‘‘Celebrate the independence of your nation by blowing up a small part of it.”

Now Michiganders will be able to do that with a little more ease, as a new law has gone into place, legalizing the sale of larger fireworks.

It won’t be long before you see the roadside stands set up, and they’ll be selling whistling rockets, roman candles, and aerial spinners.  The state has approved almost 500 permits for stores selling the larger fireworks, and the Fourth of July gets closer, the number is expected to rise.

Along with sweet explosions, the new firework law is expected to create jobs as well.  Last year alone, Americans spent almost $650 million on fireworks, and with Michigan’s new laws, the state can expect a bigger chunk of that pie.  Thousands of Michigan dollars were being spent in surrounding states with more lax fireworks laws.
