Comments

Regarding medical marijuana, said he supports reviewing current restrictions. Doggett cited a story about a close friend whose daughter suffers from epileptic seizures; he saw firsthand the positive benefits of medical marijuana, which is one reason he believes that "there ought to be other alternatives available." 8/13/17 https://hurd.house.gov/media-center/in-the-news/town-hall-addresses-health-care-and-more

He tried preventing an immigrant/DACA student, from deportation because of marijuana possesion, less than 2 ounces: According to Doggett, he says "I have tonight made a formal request to ICE in Washington for Josue's immidiate release." "Josue is a student in good standing who is charged with misdemeaner marijuana possession. He poses no threat to our national security or public safety."
