14. Legal, but regulated by date and time

Not that its enforced much. Some cities do, most others ignore it. They were legalized in 2012 if I remember right. Prior to that, anything that exploded or went into the air was illegal. That was laughably unenforced though. Michigan residents would flock to Ohio to buy them. Party stores and others would buy them in bulk and sell them illegally from the backroom or out of their houses. Unless someone got hurt or they were being used at 2am, cops would ignore calls about them. I think the typical response was "we'll send a car out after the emergency calls are taken care of" which translates to "we are never showing up."
