DULUTH, Minn. — A judge has ordered a Duluth head shop where synthetic drugs were sold to remain closed for at least one year.

Judge Shaun Floerke (FLUR'-kee) issued a permanent injunction Tuesday in the city of Duluth's nuisance lawsuit against the Last Place on Earth.

The Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/16DUkjo ) reports the judge ordered owner Jim Carlson not to sell synthetic drugs within the city.

Carlson cannot reopen his downtown store for one year, and is prevented from selling synthetics out of any other location in Duluth.

The store has been closed since the judge issued a temporary injunction in July.

Carlson remains jailed while he awaits sentencing after being found guilty of 51 federal offenses in October.
