On the program tonight, the new year rings in new laws across the United States. We look at the first state to make the recreational use of marijuana legal, and a new law on furniture flammability standards. Also, changes for the GED exam, the origins of political partisanship in the U.S., a conversation with activist Malala Yousafzai and a new album of little-heard Beatles music.
