For decades, the people of Caño Martín Peña, a neighborhood in San Juan, have dealt with some of the highest levels of poverty, flooding, and gentrification in the country. But when Hurricane María hit, it left Montañez and more than 1,200 members of this vulnerable neighborhood living under blue tarps.Yolanda Montañez (center, black blouse) in front of her home with her family.

La marihuana legal eleva recaudación impositiva en EE.UU.

La legalización de la marihuana y la consiguiente aplicación de impuestos están elevando la recaudación tributaria de gobiernos estatales y locales, pero no por mucho, de acuerdo con un informe publicado el martes. La agencia de evaluación crediticia Moody’s Investor Service señala en dicho informe que la legalización de la marihuana para consumo recreativo permite a los gobiernos recaudar más dinero del que gastan en regularla. A pesar de los elevados impuestos sobre la venta legal de la droga, el ingreso representa una pequeña proporción de los presupuestos oficiales. En Colorado, el primer estado que legalizó el consumo recreativo, el impuesto correspondiente recauda el equivalente del 2% del presupuesto estatal. En el estado de Washington, los ingresos brutos por la legalización se tradujeron en 1.2% de la recaudación general en el presupuesto 2015-17. La mayoría de los estados que ha legalizado la marihuana asigna los recursos a la policía, el tratamiento de drogadictos y otros programas específicos, lo cual no ayuda a la flexibilidad financiera de sus gobiernos. Asimismo, según Moody’s, el efecto sobre los gobiernos locales es mínimo. La marihuana con fines medicinales o recreativos es legal en 29 estados, y el negocio crece rápidamente. Según datos de la firma de investigaciones de mercado Euromonitor International citados por Moody’s, se proyecta que un negocio de 5.400 millones de dólares en Estados Unidos en 2015 alcanzará los 16.000 millones para 2020. Por otro lado, se calcula que las ventas ilegales de marihuana alcanzan los 40.000 millones de dólares.

In Puerto Rico, Waiting for Power, for Tourists, for the Flowers

Months after Hurricane Maria, the island is struggling to regain its balance. The flora tell a melancholy story.

Last November, with Puerto Rico thrown into chaos after Hurricane Maria, I was frantically trying to reach a funeral home in San Juan. My dear cousin Alma Otero-Pérez, a free-spirited poet who was my mentor and model growing up on the island, had died overnight at her home for patients with Alzheimer’s. I loved her and the loss pained me, but as her guardian, I needed to focus on medical and legal paperwork and making the necessary funeral arrangements from New York.

I had a relationship with the reliable funeral home that had guided my family through another emotional passage when my mother died several years ago. I called, but the telephones were still out months after Maria had struck. I tried emailing from their website not expecting much. But within minutes they responded by cellphone and in no time my cousin’s ashes were prepared and waiting for my arrival and a proper memorial.

That gathering didn’t happen until months later, in early March, as I waited for a semblance of normalcy to return to the island. Some of Alma’s friends and relatives had lost electricity and even running water. Others had joined the exodus, leaving the island to wait out the rough aftermath of the disaster.

But even by the time I made it to the island more than five months since Maria, I found that the place where I was born and raised, and that I visit every year with my husband, Jim, was laboring to reestablish its balance. (Last week it erupted in a massive march against new austerity measures that was marred by violence.)

With the fresh eyes of newcomers, Jim and I marveled at what everybody else already took for granted — the damaged traffic lights, dangling and dark; the giant street signs lying mangled on the side of the road; the nonworking streetlights that left whole neighborhoods pitch black after dusk.

“I can’t believe the hurricane was in September and Puerto Rico still looks like this,” my husband said as he maneuvered our rented car through a busy honor-system intersection under a traffic light hanging useless from its crossbar.

But nothing held my attention more than the vegetation. The ebullient tropical flora that forever feeds the nostalgia of those of us who leave for good — a paradise of flower beds in backyards and brilliant green forests on mountainsides, the skyline of towering fruit and palm trees — was in a state of distress, almost a kind of paralyzed melancholy, not unlike some of the people. Just like a pair of cousins who seemed to have revved up their drinking, or my sister Mari, who refused to be out at night, a Cinderella by 6 p.m., the familiar foliage showed new stress-induced idiosyncrasies even amid signs of resilience.

“Oh my God — what happened to the mango tree?” I asked Mari the morning after I arrived at our family home, when, in the light of day, I noticed a massive stump across the street where there had been a wildly productive 25-foot-tall mango factory.

“The trees were left without a single leaf,” she said of the day after the hurricane. “It was shocking. They cut it down.”

The mango tree had been a landmark of sorts on Lorenzo Noa Street in El Comandante, the suburb of San Juan where I grew up. Its branches seemed to grow more gigantic over the decades, threatening to smother the houses around it. Its abundant fruit attracted mice.

But its sweet mangoes — small and round, the perfect snack — were coveted by neighbors and even those who lived blocks away. People stopped their cars to pick up the mangoes that had dropped on the front yard and sidewalk. My own diabetic mother crossed the street often in her older years to satisfy her sweet tooth, cheating on my sister’s strict dietary controls and leaving the evidence in the trash can (five pits was her record.)

All that was left of the tree now was a Michelangelo-like sculpture with missing limbs.

Our own backyard was in even sorrier upheaval, untouched since Maria as my sister waited for the verdict of an insurance adjuster. One of two coconut trees lay flat across what had once been my mom’s meticulously groomed garden, a piece of chain-link fence crushed underneath. The tree under which we interred her ashes, a button mangrove, survived somehow, but it was now surrounded by debris blown in from around the neighborhood, including a sign from Famous Dave’s, a barbecue restaurant a mile away.

The hurricane uprooted so many trees that visitors to El Yunque, Puerto Rico’s famous rain forest, were now treated to newly opened vistas of the ocean. We visited on a Sunday morning and found most of the national park closed, still ailing from landslides and wobbly trees that park workers told us were still falling and shutting down trails and roads.

Other trees were dry rather than lush, stripped bare and just starting to revive, or misshapen, with missing branches and a phantasmagoric look. In this haunted forest, what was still available became more precious. Major tourist draws like La Mina waterfall and the Yocahu Tower, with panoramic views of the rain forest and coast, were out of reach. But a small group of tourists gathered by the side of a road took selfies at La Coca Falls, where the waters tumble 85 feet onto a rock formation. Souvenir shops along the way were open.

And more visitors found the Angelito Trailhead leading to a river and a swimming hole that was inaccessible because a bridge had washed away. A few intrepid tourists, speaking English, Spanish and Mandarin, crawled their way over some stones to get across.

My cousin Ednita, back from a stay with her daughter in Texas, told the only happy story I heard. True, her home in San Juan suffered major roof damage and was quickly taken over by termites. But her first-floor beach apartment in a modern development in Vega Baja, to the west of San Juan, was unscathed and now, for the moment, had an ocean view of sorts, since Maria had carved out a triangle-shaped opening between the once dense sea grape trees she could see from her living room.

“I can see the waves,” Ednita said, blowing kisses in their direction.

It was only fitting that we held Alma’s memorial gathering in this upbeat apartment near the water, and not just because everybody else’s homes were in mid-repair. In her poetry, Alma had written prolifically about Puerto Rico’s natural beauty. For two hours, more than a dozen close friends and family transported ourselves to her idealized world, reading verses, reminiscing and telling funny stories.

“Hallelujah to the land where I was born,” one of her poems, titled “Song to my Land,” reads.

“Holy land, motherland.

Each morning, on the wings of a thousand birds,

You kiss the day.”

Before I left New York City, I had wondered if my cousin was among the more than 1,000 estimated hurricane-related deaths. But the home where she lived had a generator and had only asked for bottled water and an extra $80 a month for hurricane-related expenses.

The immediate cause of death was listed as “cardiac arrhythmia” on her death certificate, with other contributing conditions. Josie, the friend who saw her the morning after she died, reassured us at the memorial: “She looked at peace, like an angel.”

My cousin’s advanced Alzheimer’s spared her from the collective suffering after the hurricane, which afflicted many of her loved ones. Geka, a lifelong friend, reported she still had no power or running water in the mountainous town of Orocovis, in the middle of the island. She said she had adapted with a generator, a newly built cistern and bottled water.

Maritza, a cousin from the town of Juncos, still lived under a blue tarp from FEMA that increasingly leaked.

“You can’t find the panels to fix the roof,” she said.

The conversation at the memorial inevitably turned to the hardships of coping, still too present for anyone to relax. A three- to four-month wait for hurricane shutters. The high price of generators. A rise in crime. Deadly traffic. The lack of power for thousands of households and the intermittent power outages for millions more. (Fun fact: you can create a washing machine by making holes in a plunger and plunging away.)

I was about to cook lunch one day when San Juan and surrounding areas were hit by a blackout. Two power stations shut down when a transmission line failed, underscoring the continued instability of the power distribution system. I later went to San Patricio Plaza Mall, where some stores remained open with generators but many operated in semidarkness or had closed for the day.

The movie theater was dark, screenings of “Black Panther” canceled. But the food court, where the mall’s generators powered numerous electrical outlets, was packed with people who had brought their own power bars and extension cords to charge laptops and other electronic devices. The mall had welcomed the electricity-starved crowds after the hurricane, a security guard explained, and since then it had become the place to go whenever the lights went out.

More than seven hours later, after I had brought takeout food home for dinner, the power was back. The next day in Old San Juan, which looked like its lovely self, minus countless trees, the owner of Café Puerto Rico, on the edge of Plaza Colón at the entrance to the old city, said the outages deterred customers, already so sparse since the hurricane, he said, that he no longer opens the second floor of his restaurant.

Puerto Rico is in comeback mode on many fronts, including cruise ship tourism, but “the recovery has been too slow,” the cafe owner, Héctor Andújar, said. “The government wasn’t prepared for something so big.”

So, people wait — for more tourists, for hurricane shutters, for consistent power, for building materials, for a better normal.

My sister is still waiting for her insurance company to start fixing up the backyard. We then plan to have another gathering to plant a tree with Alma’s ashes next to my mom’s. When one day that tree shows off its plumage, it will honor her love of country — la tierra — and help make her beloved Puerto Rico as splendorous as she once remembered it.

Saved Stories – None Iranian Lawmakers Burn Paper U.S. Flag in Parliament After Trump Pulls Out of Nuclear Deal(TEHRAN, Iran) — Iranian hard-line lawmakers lit a paper U.S. flag on fire at parliament Wednesday after President Donald Trump’s nuclear deal pullout, shouting, “Death to America!”The impromptu demonstration reflected broad public anger in Iran after Trump’s decision, which threatens to destroy the 2015 nuclear accord. While Iranian officials, including the parliament speaker, say they hope Europe will work with them to preserve the deal, many are pessimistic.The lawmakers, including a Shiite cleric, held the flaming flag alight as their colleagues joined their chants. They also burned a piece of paper representing the nuclear deal and stomped on the papers’ ashes.While U.S. flag-burning is common in Iran and harsh criticism of America has been a staple of Iranian parliamentary politics for years, it was the first time political observers could remember anything being burned inside the parliament itself.The 2015 agreement imposed restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program in return for the lifting of most U.S. and international sanctions.However, the deal came with time limits and did not address Iran’s ballistic missile program or its regional policies in Syria and elsewhere. Trump has repeatedly pointed to those omissions in referring to the accord as the “worst deal ever.” Proponents of the deal have said those time limits were meant to encourage more discussion with Iran in the future that could eventually address other concerns.Late Tuesday night, President Hassan Rouhani said he’d be sending Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to the countries still in the deal — China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom.Iran hopes the European Union will pass laws to protect European firms from any potential U.S. sanctions. EU officials have suggested they’ll do what they can to salvage the agreement.Still, Rouhani made a point of stressing that Iran, at any time, could resume its nuclear program.“So if necessary, we can begin our industrial enrichment without any limitations,” the Iranian leader said. “Until implementation of this decision, we will wait for some weeks and will talk with our friends and allies and other signatories of the nuclear deal, who signed it and who will remain loyal to it. Everything depends on our national interests.”Wednesday morning after the flag burning, parliament speaker Ali Larijani said responsibility for saving the deal fell on the EU and other world powers still in the accord.“The period is only a window in which the EU can prove if it has enough weight for settling down international issues or not?” he said.Larijani also urged the country’s nuclear department to prepare for “resumption of all aspects of nuclear activities.”Many Iranians are worried about what Trump’s decision could mean for their country.The Iranian rial is already trading on the black market at 66,000 to the dollar, despite a government-set rate of 42,000 rials. Many say they have not seen any benefits from the nuclear deal.Iran’s poor economy and unemployment sparked nationwide protests in December and January that saw at least 25 people killed and, reportedly, nearly 5,000 arrested.___Associated Press writer Jon Gambrell in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, contributed to this report.Militants shell center of Syrian capital, killing 1 personSyria’s state news agency says insurgents fired three mortar shells on the center of Damascus, killing one person and wounding 10.France says Iran deal ‘not dead’ as Macron to call Rouhani – CNNCNN France says Iran deal ‘not dead’ as Macron to call RouhaniCNNParis (CNN) France’s foreign minister has insisted the Iran nuclear deal “is not dead” after the US withdrew from the pact, and said French President Emmanuel Macron would call Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday to discuss how to salvage the …French Foreign Minister: Iran deal ‘not dead’, Macron to contact RouhaniReutersall 101 news articles »Syrian state TV: blast kills one, wounds others in DamascusBEIRUT (Reuters) – Syrian state television said a blast killed one person and injured others on Wednesday in the Maysat square of the capital Damascus.
