Matthew Tully: Fireworks lobby ensures nightly barrage in Indiana neighborhoods despite noise, danger

In a state with some of the nation’s loosest laws, fireworks stands pop up this time of year like weeds in your garden — in strip malls, abandoned big-box stores and under tents by the side of the road. Millions of dollars are spent, an estimated $50 million annually in this state alone, on fireworks that are labeled “consumer grade” but often rival what you might see at a professional show, Matthew Tully says in an Indianapolis Star piece.
