A downtown Duluth head shop has resumed selling synthetic marijuana, one day after a police raid.

The Duluth News Tribune reports the Last Place on Earth received its daily shipment of the popular No Name "incense" and was selling it to waiting customers Thursday afternoon.

Store owner Jim Carlson says he's also thinking about resuming sales of bath salts.

Police shut down the store Wednesday and executed a search warrant. Officers seized several vanloads of merchandise.

Synthetic drugs have been a growing concern nationwide, as hospitals report a sharp spike in the number of users becoming ill. At least two deaths in Minnesota in recent months have been linked to synthetic drugs.

Police say the investigation continues. No charges have been filed.
