5:25 pm
it should come as no surprise that the class of 2015 graduated with the most student loan debt in u.s. history. on average, they left college owing $35,000. >> tonight, we take a closer look at student debt and what families can do to ease that
5:26 pm
burden. >> there's the cost alone and then the interest. >> yeah. and the average interest rate that students are paying is 6 to 8% for federal loans. so $35,000 in debt, add on to that thousands of dollars you'll pay in interest payments. that is such a burden for kbrouyoung graduates. according to a new report, 20% of federal loan borrowers are at least 35% behind -- or at least 30 days behind in payments. that is huge. that's a really big problem. they actually do have a lot of options out there, particularly from new companies, to re-finane and get a lower interest rate. i'm looking at one website,
5:27 pm, which is like an expedia for student debt. that is to say, it's not actually a lender itself. it's a marketplace or exchange that you go on to find an offer to refinance your debt. these are traditional banks and credit unions and a crop of new start-ups. i found one woman, a mom, who had a parent loan out for her daughter. she goes to college at arizona state. she's paying out-of-state tuition. it's about $33,000. over the course of years she had taken out several loans to help her daughter pay for college. she eventually had $50,000 in debt and paying interest of 6 to 8%. huge. her breaking point was this realization that she was just paying interest, not paying down the principal of the loan. she found a new offer and she was able to save $12,000 over the course of the loan. she's now paying 4.5%.
5:28 pm
guys, that means she's just going to retire a little earlier. >> that's right. a sizeable difference there, of course. olivia sterns, thank you. watch her full report on "nbc nightly news" at 6:30 only on nbc 10. in the meantime, in a matter of days, medical marijuana will be legal in pennsylvania. >> so what happens next? a closer look at what this means for patients, next at 5:00. and all new at 6:00, hollywood hits the boardwalk of the jersey shore. we'll tell you where you can catch a glimpse, coming up.

5:33 pm
medical issues, he was home at the time. >> it's the worst feeling ever because when you know someone and you know their background and how they live and what they do, it's like, this right here, this is not her. what happened to her, huh-uh, it don't add up. >> reporter: now, everyone on this block knows the woman who was shot. we have learned her name but we're withholding it until police officially release it. she's described as everyone's grandmother, a well-liked woman who is god fearing and goes to church often and that's why there is so much shock as people are learning that she's dead. >> thank you. meanwhile, on sunday, pennsylvania will become the 24th street to legalize medical
5:34 pm
marijuana. >> it won't be available right away. it turns out, patients who have been waiting for this treatment will have to wait a little longer. >> i think the next step for me is to go on educating people. >> reporter: while patients are looking forward to a turning point in their treatment, it may take some time before they will actually have access to medical marijuana. it's been six months to put temporary restrictions in place in which patients can apply for i.d. cards and businesses to apply for dispensary licenses. >> it's going to make a huge difference in people's lives. >> the regulation became permanent in two years. it will also take about that time for the dispensary to be up and running. then, patients of delaware county will be able to fill their prescriptions for medical marijuana. it will be available to people
5:35 pm
who are terminal ill, have cancer, multiple sclerosis and other debeilitating diseases. >> i'm so happy. so many people are going to get help. >> under the law, medical marijuana will be available in pill, oil and gel form. however, in two years, the law allows the department of health to decide whether to make the marijuana available in whole flour form which could be v vaporized or used in food. now to the race for president. donald trump is sitting at 44% and ted cruz is at 28% according to the monmouth university poll. the poll also found that despite kasich being born in p.a., only 3% of likely voters said that would swing their support his way. right now, all eyes around new
