By decomposing the mass squared operator for zero mass particles of spin s we obtain one-particle quantum equations for any spin on which 2s - 1 subsidiary conditions are imposed. The derived equations are consistent with the two component neutrino equation and the Maxwell equations. Subsidiary conditions for the spins 1, 3/2, and 2 are presented.
