Matt kempner's 'unofficial business'
For years, Georgia was a grumpy old man on the idea of buying fireworks.
The state scolded that you couldn’t buy high-flying fireworks cause you’d end up putting your eye out. Or catching the neighbor’s roof on fire. Only in recent years did Georgia allow even the baby fireworks, the kind that are hand-held (sparklers) or sit near the ground (boring).
Now, with a change in state law that takes effect Wednesday, Georgia is about to become that parent who might be just a bit too cool for anyone’s good.
