The Last Place On Earth has been in and out of the news a lot, but recently there hasn't been much in terms of what role the federal government might play in restricting what products can be sold from the popular head shop.  That all changed today.

The Northland's News Center is reporting that owner Jim Carlson and other employees are the subject of a federal indictment citing 54 offenses.

The 24-page indictment accuses Carlson, and three other Last Place employees of several crimes, including many violations of federal law.  If convicted, Carlson would face over 20 years in prison.
