Welcome to Slab City, the lawless patch of California desert
This video showcases the bizarre lives of drug addicts, hippies, eccentrics, army vets and just plain old weirdos who inhabit the lawless society of Slab City in California.
The 20 minute documentary, made by Vice, follows three residents of the slum community, some calling it 'the last free place in America'. This alternative community is home to almost 2,000 people including the jobless and financially struggling recession refugees who can no longer pay for food and housing. A hundred or so permanently call this place home.
