In the United States, the laws governing consumer fireworks vary widely from state to state, or from county to county. Fireworks laws in urban areas typically limit sales or use by dates or seasons. Municipalities may have stricter laws than their counties or states do.
But what does the legal term Safe and Sane mean?
Several states only allow the sale and use of non-aerial and non-explosive fireworks also called “Safe and Sane” which includes novelties, fountains, sparklers, and a few others. These are some of our best sellers!
The legal term “Safe and Sane” usually means fireworks that do not fly or explode. Firecrackers, rockets, missiles, mines, shells, aerial cakes, flying spinners and roman candles are not considered “Safe and Sane” fireworks, although they still are legal in many states.
States such as Colorado, Arizona and California only allow Safe and Sane fireworks. Parts of Idaho and New Mexico are also safe and sane. States that have a higher tendency for drought will often limit fireworks only to safe and sane. Some states even limit how high the fountain sprays.
With as many states that may have cities or counties following the Safe and Sane guidelines, there’s still a lot of fireworks and fun to be had in this category! In fact, we’ve spent a lot of time researching and finding the best product that fits the laws in these states.
