27884 ratings | 1373364 views
Manisha Krishnan travels to Poole's Land, an anarchist commune on the western edge of Canada to figure out what exactly is drawing young people to live on the periphery of society. She ventures into the rainforest and confronts a variety of her deepest fears, but ultimately finds enlightenment in the spirit of the people who inhabit this mysterious place.

For the record: shit carries disease (cholera for example) and is the bodies way to get rid of harmful cells but urine is for the most part sterile. So, little in this basket and a little in the other. Sewage treatment prevents long issues.

*So Mr. Poole believes that putting weed fertilized by his urine into a smoothie gives him strength, ability and balance...and cures cancer. MMkay. Chive On.*

"You're gonna have to put your tent up after they're done jamming"....HAHA, I love how VICE just sends this LA Hipster chick to go camp in the woods, and her words "A prissy bitch from the City who can't even handle a BUG"...Smart one Vice, like usual.

As much as I wouldn't want to drink that smoothie,We need to be trully free on this Earth again.And these guys have the right idea. I'd like a world where drugs are legal. No one should tell you what to put in your body. So have different camps with different montras. Live and let live

Letting that bar hit dirt just broke my heart. Had to go give my chainsaw a hug.

I would live here tomorrow! I'm just curious what do they do or where do they go if someone needs medicine or gets hurt? Also what do they do when it's winter in Canada? So cold! Very curious about living here. Looks like paradise to me. Next time Vice send me!

These disgusting degenerates should be conquered and put to work, their land taken and made productive or left to nature, depending on convenience.

You know why these people have been around so long? Because the Sherrif haven’t rolled in yet and busted them for having LSD and mushrooms. Then here comes vice to put them on tv screens and fuck up their whole commune. And I’m ok with that.
bahilleli (10 days ago)
*Why would they call Cocaine and heroin SYNTHETIC ?!* They are every bit as "natural" as LSD or Mushrooms! Cocaine is a Coca lead extract, morphine is an alkaloid found in the seed pod of the Opium Poppy (Papaver Somniferum) - and heroin (diacetyl morphine) is just morphine that's been acetylized to make it cross the blood-barrier faster... Cyanide and formaldehyde are "natural" too -- that's not a good measuring stick.

Yes, they are drugs. Drugs can be used for good, or abused. People need to quit shying away from that. A drug is a mind-altering substance... they're clearly drugs. Not all drugs are created equal and none should be overused or abused.

Skids and degenerates lmao
Julian McGann (24 days ago)
To be a place that is so free, so adamant in its promotion of self love and empathy...it isn't very racially diverse. Hmm.
Y’all making the comments section boring. Be original. Enough with quoting what the guy said about “yet you choose to suffer.” You all have also read the comments section and saw it quoted 100 times too. Be creative, go different ❤️
I do not see you as a “prissy city girl”- at all. City girl, maybe. Prissy, no. Even dolled up. No offense.

bravo to the bro who moved to get away from bad influences in his life.
Sara Kate (27 days ago)
Alright SO.. All the NATURAL drugs he mentioned ARE all still DRUGS. A drug in MY definition at least being ANY mind or mood altering substance. Plus tons of drugs are natural at SOME point.. Just tweeked by humans here and there lol. But so.. by HIS take on things.. Opium should be legit. Hell as an opiate addict ID FOR SURE be down to go live in the woods, worry free, and smoke opium for the rest of my life! BRING IT ON! I wonder what his take on alcohol is then also.. Alcohol is natural. But obviously the good stuff we drink is all tweeked by humans. So.. Do they make like.. Prison type toilet wine there and drink it? Just because "ITS NATURAL?"
Mr. Knurft (25 days ago)
Just because the government says it's bad doesn't mean it's true
Sara Kate (27 days ago)
This chick was A TERRRIBLE choice to do this one vice! I mean.. She said PORTO POTTIES! Obviously a very sheltered millennial who is ALSO QUITE UNentertaining to top it all off! Wow.. And disrespectful to these people in MANY ways i keep noticing the more i watch. And Ugh.. Her talking about that thing she used to pee.. Saying how it was like her having a penis and so it DISGUSTED her and she was gonna get rid of it like.. Ok Vice. GET RID of her. Her feminism is SO fucking annoying and at a level where NO ONE is gonna like this bitch! FIIIREE HERR PLEASE!
