At Pirate Farms, we are on a mission to revolutionize the cannabis industry in the state of New York. We firmly believe that true equity can only be achieved through sacrifice and a commitment to serving our community. Our vision is to create a vibrant and inclusive marketplace that empowers equity applicants and protects their interests from predatory investors and industry practices.
To achieve this, we are firmly committed to working closely with the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM), as well as local and state universities. Together, we will establish an incubation facility that provides unparalleled opportunities for equity applicants and students. Our goal is to dedicate up to 50% of our facility's space exclusively to state equity applicants and students, fostering a nurturing environment where mentorship programs, education, and essential resources are readily available. We promise to take nothing from these individuals except to bill for necessary expenses, as our primary focus is to provide them with opportunities and support by creating entry ways into the industry.
Recognizing the impact of past cannabis policies and the war on drugs, we are dedicated to making a tangible difference in the lives of those who have been disproportionately affected. A portion of our facility's profits will be allocated to support 5,000 selected New Yorkers, helping them regain economic stability and create pathways to generational wealth. By doing so, we aim to uplift and empower individuals and their families who have faced historic injustices.
Our commitment to the well-being of medical patients is unwavering. We advocate for comprehensive insurance coverage, ensuring that addiction relief and terminally ill patients have access to high-quality, safe, and tested cannabis products. By prioritizing their care and well-being, we aim to enhance their quality of life and provide them with the support they deserve.
Pirate Farms is not simply a business entity; we are a catalysts for change. Through active engagement in prison reform efforts, in collaboration with the New York Department of Labor (NYDOL) and the Department of Corrections (DOCS), we will create opportunities for successful reintegration into society. By offering employment and support, we aim to break the cycle of recidivism and build a more just and inclusive community.
As we establish the largest distribution market for cannabis in America, our commitment to quality and transparency remains paramount. We will implement a grading system that upholds rigorous standards, ensuring that consumers have access to reliable, safe, and high-quality cannabis products. We will create a reserve to stabilize the cannabis market by ensuring a steady supply of products. This will help prevent shortages, maintain fair prices, and offer consumers a variety of high-quality options. Our vision extends beyond state borders, as we strive to create a transparent and efficient distribution network that serves interstate and international markets as prohibition laws evolve.
At Pirate Farms, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. We are dedicated to constructing a fully operational, NYSERDA approved, seed-to-store, and scalable facility that complies with all state regulations. Our goal is to achieve a net-zero carbon footprint powered by clean energy by 2030. By leveraging innovative technologies and implementing sustainable cultivation practices, we minimize our ecological impact and contribute to a more sustainable future.
In summary, Pirate Farms is driven by a deep sense of purpose, collaboration, and community empowerment. We are committed to revolutionizing the cannabis industry in New York by providing equitable opportunities, supporting those affected by past injustices, advocating for medical patients, and being agents of positive change. Through collaboration and empowerment, we believe that together we can create a prosperous and equitable future for all stakeholders in the cannabis industry and beyond.
