MG&P reminds our clients and friends that New Jersey partially lifted its ban on the sale and possession of fireworks just before July 4th. N.J.S.A. 21:2-1 et seq.
Now, New Jersey allows the sale of sparkling devices and novelties to individuals who are 16 years of age and older. Sparkling devices and novelties are defined as: 1) a wood stick or wire sparkler of not more than 100 grams of pyrotechnic mixture per item; 2) a hand-held or ground based sparkling device which is non-explosive and non-aerial, which may produce a crackling or whistling effect, and contain 75 grams or less of pyrotechnic composition per tube or a total of 500 grams or less for multiple tubes; and 3) snakes and glow worms, smoke devices, and trick noisemakers including party poppers, snappers and drop pops, each containing .25 grams or less of explosives.
All other fireworks remain illegal including all explosive and aerial fireworks
such as firecrackers, sky rockets, bottle rockets, Roman candles and the like.
With this in mind, enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe.
