Yep, the laws are weird. If you're looking to stock up for tomorrow, here's what you should know.
So you bought some "fireworks" for tomorrow. Congrats on (hopefully) successfully navigating Pennsylvania's tricky laws. Now watch this video so you know what to expect when you set them off because, well, it's underwhelming.
