Are there penalties for failing to follow Ohio's fireworks laws?
Yes. Most 1st time violations are first-degree misdemeanors, punishable by up to a $1,000 fine and 6 months in jail. Illegal fireworks can be confiscated by law enforcement authorities. Violations include falsifying the purchaser form, failing to complete the form, failing to transport fireworks out of state within the specified time period, and discharging fireworks.
