Some Fireworks Made Legal in New Jersey Ahead of Fourth of July

Fourth of July in New Jersey just got a little brighter.

Gov. Chris Christie has signed a bill that allows New Jerseyans over the age of 16 to buy “non-aerial fireworks” just in time for Independence Day. 

Sparklers, party poppers, trick noisemakers, glow worms and other non-explosive fireworks are permitted to buy and sell under the new legislation.

Keep in mind, this does not mean you can go out and buy skyrockets for your holiday celebration in the Garden State.

Under New Jersey law, you can be fined up to $500 and face imprisonment for purchasing, using or posessing unlawful fireworks.

New Jersey was one of only three states in the nation that banned the sale of all fireworks.

Retailers will now be able to stock and sell the novelty items. 

The new law went into effect Wednesday.
