Gov. John Hickenlooper signs two marijuana edibles safety bills into law at Children's Hospital Wednesday as sponsors of the measures look on.

DENVER — With a spike in the number of children turning up at Children’s Hospital’s emergency room after ingesting marijuana edibles, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper chose the hospital as a backdrop for signing two bills into law Wednesday that attempt to protect children from edibles.

The new law requires state regulators to come up with rules that make edible marijuana products identifiable even when they are out of their packaging.

The state is also likely to adopt a rule mandating that marijuana edibles are manufactured in single-serving portions, so that every individually-wrapped cookie or brownie contains the same amount of concentrated THC.

Another bill signed into law requires the State Licensing Authority to establish a standard amount of retail marijuana product and retail marijuana concentrate that is equivalent to one ounce of retail marijuana. Currently, each retail marijuana store is required to determine equivalency on its own.

Hickenlooper, a Democrat who opposed Amendment 64 but has directed his administration to implement recreational marijuana from the moment voters approved it, said the new laws “are critical to our ongoing goal of making Colorado the healthiest state in the nation and our constant goal of protecting our children.”

The industry, which employs close to 10,000 people and has been mostly cooperative with the state throughout the regulatory process, applauded the new laws.

“As the trailblazing state for this new industry, Colorado has a special responsibility to constantly improve its laws and regulations,” said Christian Sederberg, a founder and partner with the marijuana-policy focused law firm Vicente Sederberg.

“These laws are in that spirit. More importantly, they are the result of a cooperative effort between industry representatives, lawmakers and other stakeholders. That is the kind of approach we need. We are grateful to the legislature for facilitating the process and for passing these sensible bills.”

So far this year, nine children have been admitted to Children’s Hospital after accidental marijuana ingestion. The hospital saw just eight patients for that all of last year.

    Hello, welcome! Benjamin Cousijnsen wrote down the following prophetic and warning report on November 18th, 2013.

    After I had received the first message on November 18th, 2013, the messenger angel of God spoke after the message: Follow me!
    I thought, I was ready and so I had not expect this. The window with the wall shifted and disappeared, and I just watched the garden as if a wall had been taken out. The messenger angel jumped, and without thinking, I jumped after him and looked back, but saw that everything behind me was restored. At the moment we jumped, I saw nothing anymore, only the messenger angel and a dazzling beam of light above and around us.

    Before I knew it, I stood on a kind of hotplate-modelled-bottom, and we showed up in the Elohím spaceship.
    We walked into a strange sliding door, which slid open like a labyrinth. We went through it and I could take a seat on a kind of sofa. My arm sunk into it and it felt pleasantly, as a whole. The messenger angel of God said, Wait!
    And a little later he came back and read a scroll for himself, and then said: Come, Benjamin, you should go.
    I thought, ‘What is this? I’m just here, am I?’ I saw a kind of half wall with golden lion heads on a line along it, above which I could see yet a kind of white veil, where I saw the Ark of the Covenant. And I also saw a large chest with beautiful stones, pearls and coins, and a crown and other riches, and saw a lot of gold, but felt a holy presence, a presence that touches your feeling by the presence of God’s power.
    I walked along with the messenger angel of God, who said, when an opening appeared: I’m not going with you, jump and don’t fear, prophet Benjamin, you’ll go forward three days, then it will happen.
    I jumped and thought, ‘What’s awaiting me then? I put my trust in the Lord, my God’. I looked at myself, to the invisible man, like I was some wind, that blew quickly through streets. The Spirit was blowing to where I had to go, and I felt myself led and controlled, very special!

    I saw a blue bus near a school with three buildings, with a military.
    I recognized the military and realized that I was in the United States. And I flew into the school, and saw here and there military police, running with a kind of first-aid doll. They looked like four doctors, dressed in white, and another female doctor or a scholar was there.

    Moments later, I was in a classroom and saw a teacher sitting in a full classroom.
    Opposite the teacher, a boy was sitting with his table against the table of the teacher. I also saw the pupils.
    Then I heard footsteps in the hallway… hard, pounding steps, and the door of the class swung open.
    The teacher looked surprised, like: ‘There is not even knocked!’ It was a kind of a military in army clothes, and he just walked in, along with another person who did not wear army clothes, and which I had seen walking earlier. He looked more like a scholar or someone with medical knowledge, dressed in white. This man in white started to talk with the teacher, and the military stood by the door, so no one was able to leave. This man in white sat down on the seat of the teacher, while the teacher stood at the side.
    Then the man in white began to talk about the chip… and he showed it and demonstrated that in the following way…
    He had a doll with him and said he was a Christian, and that the RFID-chip was not a Mark of the beast at all, but a modern, functional means of payment, just a capsule, with which you need to nowhere pay cash or one needs to identify himself. Because the data were read in via the central bank, in order to transfer the payment requested, and also this method is protected from the robbery of money!
    And this doctor showed, how the chip functioned and was inserted into the arm, under the skin, just above the wrist, at the top of it. And this person told and explained very cheerfully, during the demonstration, how the RFID-chip was being inserted at this site. I could understand him; he spoke and also said, “Some people say that this is of the beast. The Bible says, that this is the Mark of the beast, but it is not a Mark of the beast at all! Because this is so convenient, there is nothing wrong with that. Because, one of the most beautiful things about this chip is, if you see what all you can do with it, then you’ll see that it is not of the beast. Because you can go to the shop with it, you just need to hold your hand against the scanner and you have already paid, so convenient! Have you never had it”, he said, “you don’t need to have money in your pocket or a wallet anymore!” And he told it all very beautiful, in a wise way, so that it appealed to young people.
    “Some said, that you are being watched then,” the man continued, “or being followed… all lies!” he said. “Those are all lies, because it’s just like a debit card: you can pay with it, collect money and withdraw money. You can go to a disco and pay just like that, and you can so enter everywhere with it.” In this way, he brought it attractive and very nice. “It has nothing to do with total control at all,” he said. “It does go through the central” said this doctor in the classroom, “but money is simply automatically debited, if you hold your hand along the scan. Furthermore, there is nothing wrong!” This man spoke so beautifully and said, “Look, I have a Bible with me, and what does it say? The Mark of the beast? Right!” he said. “That is also being put in the skin, but that is totally different. We do not agree with that too, for I am also a Christian,” he said. “Don’t be afraid, because this is usual, that you can withdraw money. But behind the ordinary chip, we just not stand behind that! If an ordinary chip comes out, we stand also not behind it,” he said, “though that has to do with the Mark of the beast”. But meanwhile this man promoted therefore, by a gentle force, indeed the RFID-chip, the Mark of the beast, and said all this in order to deceive.

    This doctor said, “We are instructed to go to all the schools.”
    “First, all school children in schools are chipped. The great thing is that you as well surprise your parents with that. Because when you come home and say, ‘I’m chipped’, then your parents will of course also say: ‘We want that too!’ But you have the privilege to be allowed as the first to receive the RFID chip!” he said. He also said, “If you refuse, then the fact is, that you’ll surely be punished, because you have to obey the government. Everyone is now obliged, otherwise you belong to the criminals, the murderers and to the ‘haters’. So, if you do not keep to that, and you have yourself not chipped, then you have also not enough to eat,” said this doctor.
    The young people in the classroom, some children, responded with comments like: “Yes, we must first consult that with our parents!” or “I should not do that yet from my father and mother!”
    “No, there is no consultation,” said the doctor. “If you do not choose, you remain sitting as long in the class until you choose for it,” he said.

    I saw that there were several classrooms, and these military stood everywhere by the doors.
    And I also saw, that some children were taken along in groups to a blue bus, such as an American van, in which one puts prisoners. They had a device in there, a square cube. It looked like some kind of storage battery with gauges, with a kind of rod and shooting gun on it, and I saw those buttons. And these children were chipped with this in the van itself. I also heard some children screaming in the bus.

    I also saw a boy, who went to the toilet… and in this way he was able to get away, without being noticed.
    And I could follow him on the street, very special. He ran fast, when he was around the corner, out of sight of the school. And when he came home, I saw a sticker at the front door with a fish motif of fishers of men, so I assumed that this boy was a Christian, because of the sticker, and that he had been able to escape, and that he just had gone to his parents to tell it. Then he rang the bell, and it looked like an electric door because it opened to the inside. The door closed again, and he went up the stairs and told his parents, at the kitchen table, what was going on at school. His father was very shocked and told his wife, “You just talk a little further with him.” His father went downstairs and immediately closed everything well, for security, and got back again.
    His father telephoned and passed on everything…
    Benjamin witnessed this event, which will be going to take place after three days from today in the United States, the Lord revealed to Benjamin.
    Also, the messenger angel of God told, that one already invades the homes of people in secret, and people are dragged from their homes and are forced to have themselves chipped. That’s all already in full swing!
    This was the report, which has been written down according the truth.
    Be warned and pass on this important information as soon as possible to each other!
    The Lord bless you! Ruacha, Yeshu, Shalom!
