COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Everything from tigers to taxes and wine to willingness is covered by new laws taking effect in the new year.

Michigan is trying to cut down on meth manufacture by restricting the purchase of cough and cold medicines.

A New York law bans tiger selfies starting in February. They’ve been increasingly used by young men as social media profile photos. No photos with lions or other big cats either.

Wine gets a boost in the Bay State. Out-of-state wineries can ship bottles directly to consumers in Massachusetts.

California is trying to end any question over whether no really means yes. The new standard for sex between college students is “yes means yes”. That means active consent. Silence or lack of resistance isn’t enough.

California is also requiring more living space for egg-laying hens, breeding sows and veal calves.

And school skipping students in Nevada could lose their driving privileges.
