Duluth head shop back in business after owner, son post bail

Author:

A Duluth business owner arrested last week for allegedly selling illegal synthetic drugs has reopened his store, Last Place on Earth, the News Tribune reports.

Officers arrested owner Jim Carlson, 55, and his son, Joseph Gellerman, 34, after the head shop was raided by police Friday afternoon.

Both men were charged Monday with four counts of fourth-degree sale of controlled substances. Carlson was released from St. Louis County Jail on Tuesday after posting $450,000 bail. Gellerman posted $150,000 bail.

Carlson told the Northland NewsCenter that he'll stop selling the product that sent him and his son to jail, but they will continue selling their popular incense.

In a separate case, Carlson, Gellerman and two others face 54 federal counts for violating federal drug and product-labeling laws. That trial is set to begin in September.

In early January, a judge ruled that the Last Place on Earth was a public nuisance.
