The Chinese government are pretty strict, but that may be a bit of an understatement for this latest incident. Jaycee Chan, son of Jackie Chan, has been sentenced to 6 months in prison for smoking weed in a massage parlour.
Funnily enough, Jaycee was named Beijing’s anti-drug ambassador in 2009, so I’m assuming the government is pretty pissed off with him for making them look like idiots. But still, this is pretty harsh. Especially with weed becoming legal in a shit load of places in the past 2 years.
This is what Jaycee said when he was sentenced:
I have violated the law and I should be punished. After I return to the society, I will definitely not make a mistake again because I have made my family and friends disappointed for one more time. I have gotten the punished I deserve but it doesn’t mean I have been forgiven. I hope I can use my actions in the future to get the forgiveness and to pass positive energy.
Well, at least he’s accepting of it?
