Sheffield Partners With Ashlar Government Relations to Pave Way for Expanding Safe Access for Legal Medical Cannabis Patients

Inside Line Promotions – HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (Jan. 20, 2023) – Connor Sheffield is thrilled to bring Ashlar Government Relations to the team.

Sheffield is an 18-year-old who has battled Gastrointestinal Dysmotility Pseudo-obstruction throughout his life. Medical cannabis sparked a huge change in his life, allowing Sheffield to eat regularly and live functionally despite the uncurable disease.

The micro sprint racer also thrived on the track as he became the first known medical cannabis pediatric patient to capture a feature victory in 2021. While racing is a passion, Sheffield’s focus off the track has been expanding safe access for legal medical cannabis patients.

The next step will include Ashlar Government Relations, which is a full-service Maryland lobbying firm that helps businesses, non-profits and individuals navigate the lawmaking process.

Sheffield met Therese McGucken Hessler, the Chief Executive Officer and President of Ashlar Government Relations, through his advocacy work. The company will represent Sheffield during the 2023 Maryland legislative session in hopes to pass a law that would allow medical cannabis patients safe access within medical facilities, which is currently not allowed.

“We are excited to partner with everyone at Ashlar Government Relations with a hope to gain traction toward passing a law that will expand safe access for legal medical cannabis patients,” Sheffield said. “Safe use of medical cannabis has changed my life for the better in so many ways and allowed me to live a better life. Our goal is to expand it and allow many others who can be helped with the safe use of medical cannabis the opportunity.”
