What Would You Do? Shooting Off Illegal Fireworks in the Magic Valley
What would you do? What would you do if you had a bunch of aerial fireworks, but no place to shoot them off in Twin Falls? They are technically illegal, but you can purchase them by signing a waiver to not shoot them off in the state. While many sign this waiver, few keep to it. Officers know this and will enforce the law if they catch you, but it is impossible to enforce it on everyone that ignores it. If you choose to obey the law, as you should, what do you do with your fireworks that you can't light? There are a few options, but which is the right one, and what would you do?

If you have aerial fireworks, you might be wondering what to do with them. The worst choice is you can take a chance and shoot them off, but make sure you have the money put away first if you are caught. You could find someone that has a permit to shoot them off and become friends with them. You could sell them, but that is also illegal without a permit. You could toss them, but that is a lot of money wasted, or you could hold onto them, but who knows how long you need to store them, and that isn't a safe option either.
