The company's President, David Rhodes, stated, "While import of hemp fabric/apparel is legal in the United States of America, Cartel Blue/EOC Underground looks forward to the day hemp is grown and woven into fabric here in the U.S.A. That day is coming soon as states all over the country have or are in motion to legalize hemp as a commercial agricultural product. Now, being listed on Marijuana Index Marijuana Stock Universe hemp sector will give Cartel Blue/EOC Underground the exposure benefit of investors wishing to take advantage of the excitement of marijuana/hemp relaxed legal restrictions widely expected as result from this Tuesday's election."

EOC Underground is an urban streetwear collection of men's and women's eco-friendly hemp/cotton t-shirts, hoodies, tote bags, and soon to be added jeans, vests, scarves, and jackets. Hemp apparel fabric exudes superior properties. It is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. Apparel products made from hemp will outlast their competition by many years. Not only is hemp strong, but it also holds its shape, stretching less than any other natural fiber. This prevents garments from stretching out or becoming distorted with use. Although hemp may be known for its durability, its comfort and style are second to none. The more hemp is used, the softer it gets. Hemp does not wear out, it wears in. Hemp is one of the natural fibers that possesses increased strength and absorbency, even more than cotton. Hemp fabrics can also be recycled more easily than other natural fabrics. Clothing made from hemp is resistant to mold, moisture, UV and UVB rays, is not easily discolored, is antibacterial and regulates the temperature.
