Duluth synthetics owner seeking new location

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The owner of a synthetic drugs store that has bedeviled downtown Duluth says he could be back in business in a new location as early as next week.

Jim Carlson told the Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/14aDVi0 ) that he has been in contact with several building owners in Duluth and the surrounding area since he hung a sign in his shop window over the weekend.

Carlson’s shop is closed while a judge weighs evidence in a civil nuisance case brought against Carlson by the city. Duluth wants to shut down his shop for a year because of numerous complaints about the behavior of his customers.

Duluth City Attorney Gunnar Johnson says Carlson could open a store elsewhere, but he couldn’t sell synthetics without getting a city license.
