Jackie Chan has some harsh thoughts on what the consequence should be for those who are convicted of drug offenses.
It's a bit surprising since his own son, Jaycee, was sentenced to jail for sheltering others to use drugs — mainly marijuana — in his home.
After being named the first celebrity anti-drug ambassador in Singapore, the 61-year-old talked about his personal thoughts on the punishment for the penalty.
Seeing as how Singapore and China have capital punishment for drug trafficking, it's safe to say Jackie agrees with the consequences already put in place.
"On some issues, I do support the death penalty. When you're hurting thousands and thousands of young children, I think these kind of people are useless. You should get the right punishment.
[Young people say marijuana] 'it's okay, it's just like a cigarette.' I say, 'It's not okay, not in my family.'"
The actor then went on to talk about how the drug charges against his son has made him change his views on his off-spring.
"I'm concentrating on him now. [It] used to be just, 'You are a grown man.' But now I've found out that he's still a boy."
Sounds like Singapore made the right call by asking Jackie to be their ambassador on this topic!
At least Jackie understands it's a problem and is willing to work on the issue with Jaycee.

Jackie Chan's son, Jaycee Chan, is officially headed to prison.
Jaycee, who was charged with sheltering others to use drugs (marijuana) earlier this month, received a lenient sentence of just six months in prison and a $325 fine for the crime.
While the actor's son could have faced up to three years in jail, the judge was sympathetic because he willingly confessed to the offense and because he had no prior criminal record.
In response to the sentence, Jaycee commented:
Jackie Chan's son, Jaycee Chan, is not getting off the hook this time.
The actor's son was charged with sheltering others to use drugs (marijuana) on Monday, an offense that could earn him up to three years in jail.
Officials in Beijing, where Chan was arrested, are cracking down on drug use in the city, so we wouldn't be surprised if Jaycee receives the maximum sentence.
Hopefully they can get through this together.
Jackie Chan recently opened up about his son Jaycee Chan's arrest and detention in Beijing, China, last Thursday on drug charges. The action star expressed how he was "ashamed" and "heartbroken" when he heard the news.
The 31-year-old son was arrested along with his friend and Taiwanese actor Kai Ko in a VERY public arrest that happened after police found about 3.53 ounces of marijuana in Jaycee's home.
His father Jackie wrote a letter to the public on his official website that addressed everything that happened to his son and family.
Here's what he wrote in the letter:
Uh oh, this isn't good news for Jackie Chan.
The international actor has spent years campaigning against drugs and now his son is being charged with drug-related offenses after being arrested in a Beijing drug bust.
Over the weekend, the actor's son Jaycee Chan and Taiwanese actor Kai Ko were both detained after being tested positive for marijuana.
