As of right now, the only persons who can apply for one of these particular licenses are persons who, according to a press release from NYSOC:

  • Have a marijuana-related offense conviction that occurred prior to the passage of
    the Marijuana Regulation and Tax Act (MRTA) on March 31, 2021, or have had a
    parent, legal guardian, child, spouse, or dependent with a pre-MRTA marijuana-related offense conviction in the State of New York.  

One should also have experience running a business, when they apply for the license too, as that is also a requirement.
