    I think this may answer your question, indirectly.

    Keeping up with fireworks laws

    There are updates to this article.

    WASHINGTON (Map, News) - Just how hands-on your fireworks experience can be this holiday weekend depends on where you are in the Washington area. Restrictions on fireworks vary widely.

    » Fireworks are illegal in Alexandria, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. Included in the ban are ground-based fireworks, sparklers and “snakes.”» Ground-based fireworks in Arlington, Fairfax and Prince William counties and Washington are permitted, but with provisions. The District’s policy bans any firework or firecracker that moves, explodes or emits a flame or spark of greater than 12 inches. Sparklers of less than 20 inches and other small, ground-based fireworks are permitted.

    » In Arlington, Fairfax and Prince William counties, fireworks that explode, emit flames or emit sparks greater than 12 feet are prohibited. Explosives that travel laterally or rise into the air are also illegal.

    » In Virginia, aerial firework displays are permitted with a valid permit on state-owned sites only. A separate application to possess or detonate fireworks must be filed and approved by the Virginia State Fire Marshal.

    » In Alexandria, displays are allowed only if the site has a permit granted by the city’s Code Enforcement Bureau.

    » Aerial displays in Maryland must have obtained permits from the State Fire Marshal.

    Violators of the state law will face a penalty of up to $250 for each offense.

    A violation of Virginia’s State Fire Prevention code is a misdemeanor. Violators face up to one-year imprisonment and/or a fine of $2,500.

    In the District, violators face prosecution and fines up to $1,000.

    If you are in an area that allows safe and sane then there is no restriction for them.
