New laws begin in Michigan in 2019 regarding the use and sale of consumer-grade fireworks.

The new regulations give the power to the local communities and not the state according to Fox 17,

The measures will enable communities to reduce the number of days on which setting off fireworks is allowed, determine hours of use, and reduce late night and early morning use.


Many will agree it's a great idea to let local governments regulate fireworks use.  However, many will become confused now that each town can have completely different days and times they are allowed to set off fireworks.  Per a release, local governments will be able to restrict the use of consumer-grade fireworks except during the following dates and times:

  • New Year’s Eve into New Year’s Day at 1 a.m.
  • Memorial Day Weekend, specifically Saturday & Sunday until 11:45 p.m. each day
  • Fridays and Saturdays between June 29th and July 4th, until 11:45 p.m.
  • Labor Day Weekend, specifically Saturday & Sunday, until 11:45 p.m.

What do you think?  Is this fireworks reform a good thing or a bad thing?  Let us know in the facebook comments.
