I'm an international student still in status but married to a Permanent resident and I-130 was approved. Can can i apply for a work permit while waiting for my priority date?

Once your priority becomes current you would be able to file I-485 including application for EAD.

I agree with my colleagues, not until your priority date is current. A work permit is always submitted as a benefit from another application, in this case your I-485
