Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The United States Food and Drug Administration investigators are looking for people who have been negatively affected after using synthetic cannabinoids sold at the Last Place on Earth in Duluth.

These inquiries are part of the FDA's ongoing investigation into the negative affects of synthetic drugs that are sold at stores such as the Last Place on Earth.

It is believed that the Last Place on Earth markets synthetic cannabinoids “herbal incense” or “synthetic marijuana” under several different brand names including, but not limited to—“No Name,” “Maya Blue Crystal Skull,” “Fear & Loathing,” “Fear & Loathing II,” “Oblivion,” “Smokin’ Camel,” “Smokin’ Dragon,” “Sk8er,” “DOA,” and “Magic Silver.”

In a recent report from the medical journal Pediatrics, synthetic cannabinoids have been linked to temporary catatonia, agitation, diaphoresis, and hallucinations in some patients who said that they had used synthetic cannabinoids.

Additionally, the American Association of Poison Control Centers reports that they have seen an increase in the number of calls to poison control related to synthetic cannabinoid use.

If you, a family member, or someone you know has suffered any negative health effects or reactions after using “herbal incense”/synthetic cannabinoid products sold by the Last Place on Earth, please contact the FDA at synthetics@oci.fda.gov.
