1971/1972: U. S. GOVERNMENT PANEL STATES:Or click here or here.
The argument, "... now we have really high potency cannabis which was not available or known commonly in 1971 when the Shafer Commission was in session ...", being used to discredit the Shafer Commission recommendations from 1971, is idiotic. At that exact moment, extremely high potency hashish from Afghanistan was available to nearly everyone throughout the USA. Hashish has only recently again become available in the USA, parallel with legalization of medical and casual weed in a few states.
This means the Shafer Commission members were probably totally aware of any dangers, real or imagined, from high potency cannabis when the report was issued. We all know that tolerance to the active ingredients of marihuana begins minutes after we use it. Therefore, the Shafer Commission report is as valid today as it was in 1971.

(NOTE: "Ninth Article Productions", for the internet, is a personal blog on the world wide web which has existed, first as the NORML Canada website since early 1996-2004 (www.calyx.com/~normlca (March 1996- Jan. 30, 2000), www.iowatelecom.net/~sharkhaus (July 2002- Sept. 2004)).
Then since 2005 the website has existed as my personal blog/website (www.nintharticle.com), which is not a company or an organization of any type. Basically, it's a website to showcase my videos produced 1992-1996 by "Ninth Article Productions" about Dutch marihuana coffee shops; and has been mentioned or promoted here on the world wide web, in some form, since early 1996. No one controls the content here, but me since Sept. 2004. Before that, the President of NORML Canada had ultimate control.
"Ninth Article Productions" was the dba name for myself, registered in one state as a personally used "ficticious name", having produced the two VHS videos, with other information, which I sold by mail-order 1993-1998 from the classified advertising pages of High Times magazine, and Relix magazine, which is still a magazine devoted mostly to the Grateful Dead.)

Did the World Trade Center Towers collapse due to deliberate controlled demolitions, or was it due to the airliners, etc.????
My opinion: first of all, I have heard from probably about 50 different people over the past 14 years that they could see on many videos what appears to be small explosions (or puffs of dust) being emitted around the edges of the buildings, just below the area where the pancaking process of collapse is occurring, just as the buildings are "pancaking down", floor by floor, as they fell.
The fact that so many Americans are convinced that our country attacked itself on 9-11-2001, is also very disturbing in itself. Why are so many so confused? Who are confusing the people, and what are their motives?
Back to the collapse of the WTC towers:
Well, yes. I can see that also (the puffs of dust or smoke as the buildings collapse). But think about this:
MY OPINION: go to YouTube and play some videos of all the controlled demolitions that you want. Notice that YES, in a controlled demolition, there are always a series of controlled and carefully timed explosions created by the demolition crew engineers, to create just the precise sort of collapse that is desired in order to bring the building(s) down in the required and desired manner. But in the controlled demolitions that I have seen, the explosions always occur JUST BEFORE the buildings are actually collapsing.
The small puffs of dust or smoke being emitted as both of the WTC towers fell, were occurring AS the buildings were falling, not before. That actually proves that there were no controlled demolitions occurring at the WTC towers on 9-11-2001.
Here are a number of back-up points that further prove my theory:
- Controlled demolitions are normally very carefully set off using explosive charges connected by wires to the operator's control position.
- Using wired rather than wireless connections is the traditional method used, as wireless control can be unpredictable.
- Also, usage of any strong radio transmitting equipment is usually prohibited by the demolition crews anywhere near such demolitions to prevent the accidental setting off of demolition explosions before the proper moment caused by strong wireless signals. Strong radio (wireless) signals always cause "induced currents and voltages" to occur accidentally in nearby metal or electrical circuits of all types, resulting sometimes in unpredictable and accidental premature explosions of the demolition charges.
They also make sure that all strong radio transmitting equipment nearby is shut off before they even place the charges!
- Why the charges must be detonated before the collapse occurs: 1)if the collapse has begun occurring before any charges are set off, then it wasn't the charges being set off that caused the collapse, and 2)the wires leading to each explosive charge attached to the building's structure must be intact in order to function. If the building has started falling already, there is no way the wires will still be in place properly.
- Therefore, the puffs of smoke or dust observed by everyone in the world on TV as the WTC buildings are falling is not being caused by explosive charges being set off, but rather by the building structure popping apart as it falls due to structural failure of the rivets holding the building together. Some or all of that is dust or disturbed building material, not smoke. END OF STORY.
- Even if someone tried to use wirelessly activated explosive charges attached to the buildings' structures, as the buildings are falling, it is unlikely that these charges would work properly due to the physical vibrations, fractures, massive movements and flexing, that would tend to detach or damage the carefully placed charges with attached mobile-phone detonation circuits being activated wirelessly, presumably by mobile cell phones.
- Another thing: as we all know from personal experience that the modern mobile cell phone networks have small, unpredictable, but very noticable delays in the voice and data transmission that would preclude the required precise timing of the detonation of many wirelessly activated explosive charges, if terrorists had tried to use that method.
It's very easy for terrorists to set off ONE, TWO, OR THREE roughly coordinated explosive charges for a roadside bomb project, using existing mobile phone technology. But for hundreds and hundreds of such explosive charges to be set off at precisely the right moment to bring down two of the tallest buildings in the entire world, would be virtually impossible using today's mobile phone or data networks due to the unpredictable delays in timing.
- If the terrorists skipped using the existing mobile phone networks as part of the detonation circuits, they would then necessarily have to use conventional radio (analog) equipment to do the same thing. Considering that the WTC towers are the actual location in New York City where many millions of watts of radio signals are being broadcast all the time for commercial TV and radio, those ultra strong signals tend to interfere with, or overpower many electronic and electic circuits in the nearby area, making it impossible to use conventional (analog) radio equipment for such purposes.
As stated above, strong radio signals are prohibited near any demolition projects due to the danger of accidental explosions occuring prematurely due to these very strong radio signals from commercial broadcasters, which induce uwanted currents and voltages in all nearby metal structures and wiring, precluding the use of controlled explosions in such areas.
- Some have stated that there isn't enough fuel in airliners to create enough heat to melt metal. BULLSHIT. Well more than half the weight of most modern airliners consists of fuel, if the airliner is full or nearly full of fuel, and airliners weigh hundreds of thousands of pounds. Airliners which crash without hitting buildings are usually almost totally melted away after the fires are put out; therefore, I'm sure this steel building would melt in some semi-confined areas if exposed to such heat as well as the airliner metal.
Not enough fuel onboard to melt steel? A typical American tanker truck trailer hauls from about 5,000 to 11,000 gallons of fuel. A Boeing 757 when fully fueled contains about as much fuel as a fully loaded tanker truck trailer. The Boeing 767 when nearly full of fuel contains about as much as two fully loaded tanker truck trailers.
These planes that hit the WTC towers were in a semi-enclosed building when burning, not sprawled openly on the ground outside, so heat would be greater in such a semi-confined area, perhaps hot enough to melt or weaken steel beams.
Both wired and wireless demolition methods would be difficult or impossible due to the extreme amount of high power radio signals in the area, which would make it impossible to even safely place the charges, much less to later control them.
For the above reasons, I have never suspected that controlled demolition methods were used in the destruction of the WTC towers by terrorists, domestic or foreign after seeing the many videos of those buildings falling.
I read an article many years ago written by a structural engineer that stated that the WTC Towers were near the edge of the envelope in terms of structural safety due to their immense height and modern "naked-steel" frame construction. The large airliners nearly full of fuel crashed into the buildings well below the very top floor, so that there is enough weight and mass of the buildings above the impact point, to create sufficient further stress and pressure to initiate the collapse process after the super-heated steel lost its strength due to nearly melting, or actually melting. Once begun, the pancaking process would continue all the way down due to the marginal design strength.
This article stated that if the airliners had hit reinforced-concrete framed buildings such as the Empire State Building, the collapses would not have occurred at all, as those older buildings whose entire steel framing is ensheathed in concrete are more "over-built" than the newer "naked steel frame" designs.
