Judge: Duluth Head Shop is Public Nuisance

Court ActionDULUTH (AP) — A judge has ruled that a downtown Duluth head shop is creating a public nuisance.

Judge Shaun Floerke ordered the owner of the Last Place on Earth to pay for two police officers to provide security and nuisance control.

The judge said head shop owner Jim Carlson’s argument that there is no proof his business has sold synthetic marijuana in the past year is irrelevant. Business owners have long complained about the throngs of customers who gather outside the shop.

Carlson was ordered to hire two police officers to be present at the business from one hour before he opens until closing time every day the business is in operation.

Carlson’s attorney Randall Tigue says he plans to appeal the judge’s order.
