Marijuana: Boulder's Dandelion Dispensary reopens after bizarre bear-mace robbery

Just checked in with the Boulder Police Department, and spokeswoman Kim Kobel tells us there have been no arrests or new developments regarding the investigation into a bizarre robbery at the Dandelion Dispensary, a Boulder marijuana shop.

But at least the Dandelion has reopened after an extensive cleanup necessitated by the perpetrator's choice of weapon: bear mace.
