SUPERIOR - A man from Superior who owns a head shop in Duluth, Minnesota has been charged with violating federal drug laws.
55-year-old Jim Carlson and three of his employees were indicted by a federal grand jury in Minneapolis on a total of 54 charges. Carlson owns a shop called the “Last Place on Earth.” The indictment said he and his employees obtained and sold items that were falsely labeled as incense, bath salts, and potpourri – and all of them were actually synthetic drugs.
The grand jury said the items were meant for human consumption, in spite of their alleged false labeling. Officials said the items were bought from various places in Wisconsin, Arizona, California, Florida, and Pennsylvania. Carlson’s attorney, Randy Tigue, says his client will plead innocent to his charges.
