Are smoke bombs legal in California?

Not Legal Advice: The legality of selling or possessing fireworks can be complex and confusing as it will depend on the city and county where you live.

So, before you decide to spend money on fireworks, it is a good idea to talk to your local police or fire department and have them explain the local regulations.

Generally, California law allows you to purchase “safe and sane” fireworks between noon on June 28 and noon on July 6. This is also the only time period that any person may possess or use fireworks legally, unless he or she has a special permit that allows use or possession during other times of the year.

All "safe and sane" fireworks must display a "State of California, State Fire Marshall Registered Fireworks" seal. If they do not, they are illegal fireworks in California.
