For the second time this week, the Duluth head shop Last Place on Earth has reopened its doors, WDIO-TV reports.

The most current chapter in the saga of the Last Place on Earth began last Friday when authorities arrested owner Jim Carlson and his son, Joseph Gellerman, as part of a long-running investigation into synthetic drugs.

Carlson, 55, and Gellerman, 34, were both charged with with four counts of fourth-degree sale of controlled substances Monday, and the store reopened after the men posted bail.

The shop was closed again on Wednesday after Carlson was arrested again, this time on a federal drug charge.

WDIO says Carlson will remain in jail until Monday, when he will appear in federal court in Minneapolis.

Gellerman reopened Last Place on Earth Friday morning, and the store has been ordered to pay for two police officers to be on duty outside of it while it remains open.

Carlson will remain in jail until at least Monday, when he will appear in federal court in Minneapolis.

Carlson, Gellerman and two others face 54 federal counts for violating drug and product-labeling laws, and are scheduled to go on trial in September.
