Full Answer

A quarter stick generally contains between 25 and 30 grams of explosive material, so it produces a large explosion that can cause serious bodily damage. The high capacity exceeds the limits for fireworks set forth by the United States government, making quarter sticks of dynamite illegal to transport or use. Most quarter sticks are made and sold by illegal fireworks manufacturers.
