Seem insignificant police would upload Footage of JC Chan being arrested at his Parents 10 million luxury Beijing Apartment during which he'd admit to Having approximately 100 grams of weed In his cupboard this was extra bad for The Chan family's reputation as Jackie Chan had been China's official anti-drug Ambassador since 2009. for this reason Jackie Chan would take to social media To apologize writing for my son JC to Get into such trouble I'm very angry and Astonished as a public figure I'm Ashamed as a father I'm heartbroken I Can't begin to describe his mother's Pain I failed to be a good father and I Deserve the blame I would take the Responsibility and apologize to the Public on behalf of JC in the process Jackie practically disowned his son Stating that he hadn't and didn't plan On using any of his connections to Lesson JC's sentence I have not visited Him even till now I did not even use any Connections to call anyone if JC only Went in jail for one week or 10 days how Would the public look at us we are Public figures and all the more we have To abide by the laws which was Accompanied by Jackie Chan somewhat Hilariously telling JC's lawyer to slap Him twice for me while Jackie Chan Wanted absolutely nothing to do with JC The Chinese government took the opposite

Approach making a public anti-drug Example out of JC by televising the Trial which would happen approximately Four months after his arrest Jason was Sentenced to six months in prison and Was ordered to pay a 320 fine for Possession as well as the crime of Sheltering others to take drugs JC took This sentence humbly stating I've broken The law and should be punished when I Returned to society I will not repeat This because I have let my family and Friends down yet again although this Wasn't enough to satisfy his parents who Didn't even attend the trial whilst in Prison JC would send letters to his Mother in which he explained that he Experimented with drugs because of the Bad crowd he was mixing with and started Relying on drugs to soothe himself Whenever he felt upset JC also wrote About the struggles he faced growing up In a famous family and revealed that the Expectations of Fame placed a lot of Pressure on him he then expressed his Unhappiness with Jackie for not showing Him enough concern however his father Wasn't rushing to offer any kind of Sympathy Jackie Chan would stayed in an Interview I hope to be an anti-drug Ambassador for Life I even hope that After JC is out he can be an anti-drug Ambassador too telling everyone to stay Away from drugs which was followed by
