Can a person with a non-violent felony obtain a tobacco license?
A felony is rarely an automatic bar to obtaining a license. Most applications will ask the applicant or owner of the company to provide details and an explanation regarding any criminal convictions. The licensing authority will then investigate the incident and decide on whether to issue the license or not.
Generally, if you are forthcoming with the information, and the crime is not directly related to the license you are seeking (for e.g. selling tobacco products to a minor), you will be issued the license.
If you would like to pursue a tobacco license, see New York Retail Tobacco License for more information on how to do so.
