A recognized leader in the industry, he advised the Nevada State Legislature in the drafting of SB-374, legalizing the establishment of 60 dispensaries.
In combination with his extensive rule-making background, Asnani is also a licensee holder of Tucson’s Downtown Dispensary. Named “Best Marijuana Dispensary” in 2015, the successful enterprise includes the hands-on learning center that will be utilized for Final Rules client consulting services.

Her in-depth understanding of local and national markets, as well as her comprehensive knowledge of the marijuana industry, its cultivation practices and community involvement, is unparalleled.
The demanding dispensary criteria, coupled with the added pressure of a looming New Year deadline, requires the expertise and conscientious approach that Asnani, Boyden and Gullickson have developed with Final Rules.
Final Rules provides an on-boarding process for legislators in states that are considering marijuana laws but need a policy blueprint that has worked elsewhere. Final Rules also helps accredited investors understand the realities of the marijuana business based on its extensive experience in the industry.
