I am sick of illegal fireworks... Some people just use no common sense when using them. It seems that all those people live near my parents.

LEGAL FIREWORKS (No Permit Required).

*

Flat paper caps
*

Toy trick noisemakers (party poppers, pop-its, fun snaps, toy pistols).
*

Sparklers
*

Filter Sparklers (a narrow paper tube attached to a thin wooden handle producing a shower of sparks).
*

Fountains that are cone shaped or cylindrical shaped that emit a shower of sparks and sometimes a whistle effect.
*

Toy Snakes (a pressed pellet that produces a large snake-like ash upon burning).
*

Toy Smoke Devices (smoke bombs, smoke pots, smoke grenades, smoke balls, etc. that produce white or colored smoke).
*

Signal flares, blank cartridges or blank cartridge pistols, and railroad emergency signal devices.
*

The sale of fireworks provided they are to be shipped directly out of state. (Dealers may not sell fireworks in Michigan using signed statements that the purchaser will use the fireworks out of state).

EXAMPLES OF ILLEGAL FIREWORKS IN MICHIGAN (This List Is Not All-inclusive).

*

Cherry Bomb - A small red sphere approximately 1" in diameter.
*

Comet (or Mine) - A cylinder containing a star and attached to a wooden base. Upon ignition the star is thrust 50-100 feet in the air and continues to glow as it falls to the ground.
*

Firecracker - A small noisemaking cylinder up to 1.5" in length, often strung together with a fuse.
*

M-80 - Up to 2" in length, usually a red cylinder with a fuse coming out the side.
*

Bottle Rockets - A cylinder, frequently topped by a cone to stabilize its flight, attached to a long stick.
*

Roman Candles - A 6-12" tube containing alternating layers of compacted black power that shoots single stars out the top when lighted.
*

Silver Salute (M-100) - A silver cylinder with a fuse coming out of the side containing large quantities of flash powder.
*

M-250 and M-1000 (quarter stick) -Large versions of the M-80 and M-100 that have extremely high risk factors for crippling and disfiguring injuries.
*

Torch - A 6-12" tube filled with colored material and ending in a handle. When ignited, streams of colors come out of the top of the tube.



A firework that spins or twirls is a "wheel" and thus is neither a "cylindrical fountain" nor a "cone fountain." The sale, offer for sale, use or possession of these "wheel" type devices is prohibited in Michigan.



If you are traveling, I caution you that ten states ban all consumer fireworks (Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont) while six other states (Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Ohio, and Pennsylvania) only allow sparklers and/or other novelties.

sorry, no bottle rockets at quickie mart.

last 4th we put over $400 worth on a 4x8 sheet of 3/4 plywood mounted to a canoe and anchored it in the lake. fireworks were set off via remote electronics. looking for bigger bang this year. this is a serious inquiry.

the answer to your question is basically anything that shoots into the air that goes boom is not legal.

Almost none are illegal. You just need a pyrotechnic license, A properly identified vehicle meeting dot regulations for transporting explosive material, an atf approved storage facility, permission from the city/village/township to store explosive material on the property, and a permit from the local firemarshal to fire the pyrotechnics.

Not to mention bonds and insurance for both storage and use... I've looked into this as well.

I moved out of Michigan, everything here is kosher as far as the firework stores look. 2 years ago for the 4th me and some friends had $400 or so of Indiana fireworks confiscated...
