DULUTH -- Duluth’s Last Place on Earth is to remain closed for at least one year, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Sixth Judicial District Chief Judge Shaun Floerke issued a permanent injunction in the city’s nuisance suit against the downtown head shop, ordering owner Jim Carlson not to sell synthetic drugs within the city.


Carlson cannot reopen his store for one year, and is prevented from selling synthetics out of any other location within the city.
