Legalize fireworks?

By Michael Schaffer
Managing Editor

---- — The Daily Iowegian will publish an Editorial Question of the Week on the Opinion page.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about a move underway in the Iowa Legislature to lift the ban that made fireworks illegal in Iowa. Lifting the ban would in essence mean what you may have driven to Missouri to purchase legally and brought back to Iowa illegally would now be available here. Good idea?

So, the question of the week is, “Should the Legislature vote to lift the ban on the sale of fireworks in Iowa?”

Go to the Daily Iowegian website,, and scroll down the home page to POLL on the right hand side and cast your vote. Or call the Iowegian office at (641) 856-6336 or email the editor at to cast a vote.

Vote on the Question of the Week up until Wednesday, March 19 at 12 p.m. The results will be published in the Thursday, March 20 paper along with a new question.

Here are the results from the last poll question: “Should medicinal marijuana be available in Iowa?”

A. Yes received 175 votes.

B. No received 67 votes.

C. Not sure received 11 votes.
