The Minnesota fireworks conspiracy

Minnesota has a very ridiculous consumer fireworks statute (624.20): anything stronger than a fart is illegal. It was very exciting several years ago when it was amended and we were finally allowed to have “sparklers,” which are basically just those novelty birthday candles you can’t blow out, but on a stick.

I wouldn’t be surprised to find out if it were part of a ploy to make Minnesota into a place where interesting things are outlawed in order to promote tourism and Wisconsin imports.
