I heard the strangest story on the radio yesterday. It seems that it is illegal to sell or possess personal fireworks in New Jersey. So, the radio was reporting on the beginning of the Pennsylvania fireworks season where vendors located just across the border sell to New Jersians who buy personal fireworks there and then bring them back across the border. We had a similar situation in Colorado where many people went to Wyoming to buy fireworks that were illegal in Colorado. The difference is, it is actually illegal to sell personal fireworks to a Pennsylvanian resident in Pennsylvania! However, it is not illegal to sell fireworks to someone from out-of-state, thus the thriving business.
