WVC 17 C- 1 - 24
"Explosives" means any chemical compound or mechanical
mixture that is commonly used or intended for the purpose of
producing an explosive and which contains any oxidizing and
combustive units or other ingredients in such proportions,
quantities, or packing that an ignition by fire, by friction, by
concussion, by percussion, or by detonator of any part of the
compound or mixture may cause such a sudden generation of highly
heated gases that the resultant gaseous pressures are capable of
producing destructive effects on contiguous objects or of
destroying life or limb.
