Ban the use of personal firework use in the state of Michigan.
Why is this important?
The Michigan State Legislature has made all fireworks legal. But even when they were illegal, there was no recourse for those affected by them. Citizens complain of being "blown out of bed" at all hours of the night, having to sedate their pets with drugs due to the anxiety created by loud fireworks displays, veterans with PTSD are terrorized once again and all wildlife is stressed from the blasts. Fireworks emit toxic heavy metals in the smoke which goes onto our gardens, on our lawns where our children play, in the lake water and into our lungs. These metals can cause cancer, lung distress and digestive disorders. One must ask, is this really fun? And, what rights do we have to a quiet, peaceful home environment?
