Morning Poll: How Many Wildfires Will be Caused by Crappy Fireworks Within First Year of Their Legalization?
The bill doesn't permit cool fireworks like bottle rockets or M-80s, but it allows Arizona residents to buy, sell, and use things like sparklers and those stupid ground snakes.
Fire chiefs across the state have voiced opposition to the new law, saying that fireworks -- even if they are the lame, crappy ones -- will inevitably lead to wildfires.
There are provisions in the law that give local municipalities the option of banning fireworks within their jurisdictions and gives counties the ability to regulate areas with a
reasonable risk of wildfire.

Fire officials are still worried that people having easy access to fireworks will lead to fires, despite the provisions.
We don't want to see any of Arizona's wildlife destroyed but with every convenience store in the Valley likely to be selling fireworks soon, it seems to be only a matter of time.
So, we want to know what you think: How many wildfires will be caused by fireworks within a year of the law taking effect on December 1?
Let us know what you think -- and see the results of yesterday's poll -- after the jump.
