moved slowly towards this three bedroom home on pahoa on the big island. just before noon, the home was in a raging fire. in about 45 minutes the 1100-square foot home was destroyed. >> our wait is kind of over. it's okay, we can close the book on that because, you know, the house burned finally, you know. it's like, okay, so we're on to our new story. >> reporter: the lava coming from the kilauea volcano has been advancing for weeks. after crossing the country road on edge the molten walk covered forests and water ways and buried a local cemetery. officials have done their best to monitor the flow but with temperatures reaching up to 2100 degrees, there's nothing that can be done to stop it. >> the at least 400 yards -- 400 to 500 yards from the next closest residence. >> reporter: with lava claiming private property, the threat to residents has become all too real. >> i don't think it's short-lived. it's still pumping. it's going to be agonizing for a lot of folks. >> reporter: there are about 50

7:15 am
area. and the more structural changes that happen the younger they start. but after six or seven years those structural changes go away. >> so did they already have a smaller frontal lobe or did the marijuana shrink their brain? >> key question. we just don't know. it took people by questionnaire who used marijuana versus those who did not, they looked at those. marijuana is a class one narcotic. it's difficult to do a study. that part needs to change so we can study it. >> you know, dr. david agus here in new york city, they just announce they had would no longer be arresting people caught with small amounts of marijuana. we just had an election where recreation marijuana became legal in certain states. do you think it could have an impact on public policy? >> no question. i feel like i should be holding up a bag of oregano when i answer this. but there's no question, a study like this, really puts into our
7:16 am
heads there are changes in the brain especially young people when they use marijuana. i think it's somewhat premature to go forward with this legislation. again, i'm not a policy expert but i think we need more studies to understand that. i'm afraid after seeing data like this what could happen. >> what would you need to know before you would recommend medicinal marijuana? >> two things. i want to follow people before and after they use marijuana to show that the changes in the brain are actually subject to marijuana use. people who used marijuana had a significantly lower i.q. than people who didn't, and again we want to follow that over time. >> david agus, important information. thank you so much. 15 missing hikers in california are safe this morning. they spent sunday morning in the san gabriel mountains. one said, quote, it was just safer for us to wait until the morning. searchers found eaton canyon a

7:36 am
15-year-old because we look more at rehabilitation for someone of that tender age. but when you look at the 17 year olds, you might have expected them to be transferred. so what would the prosecutor do? i think that he -- the prosecutor really did a humane act. what the prosecutor did was basically say to himself what if that were my child? what he did was, he looked at all of the factors, not justify the severity of the crime which would have been enough to transfer them. but also to look at their criminal history, if any. their ages. what possible rehabilitation they might. he reports all of these teens are amenable to rehabilitation. >> so if in fact found guilty would it be different in terms of sentencing? >> huge difference charlie. if they were found guilty as adults of the top count, that's a 20-year maximum. here the top count is aggravated sexual assault.
