62. With all due respect
I don't think it's the clothing industry blocking this stuff. They aren't looking 50 years into the future, and you can always "modernize" your designs. It's the religious fundies blocking it. Forget walking, looking, or quacking like a duck, if it remotely even smells like a duck it's the weed from hell.

I don't have hemp stuff myself, but what I've seen is rough but warm, coarse but heavy. Not the perfect material for everything, but probably great for many occasions. However, since we can't differentiate between hemp grown for fabric and hemp grown for smoking, all hemp is bad. C'est la vie.
