We guess his words at the Emmys moved a number of people!
Michael Douglas recently spoke about how he doesn't understand why he can't see his son Cameron, who is in prison for selling cocaine and methamphetamine, for two years.
Originally the celebrity kid was sentenced to five years behind bars, but was slapped with another five years after being found guilty of additional drug infractions in prison. Cameron currently is in solitary confinement with another two years to go!
Subsequently activist Tony Papa of the Drug Policy Alliance has now started a petition at Change.org that seeks to gather enough signatures to convince Attorney General Eric Holder to not only allow Michael Douglas' son to see his family, but for other families to see their loved ones in prison, too!
Here's what Tony Papa recently said:
So that's what it was all about!
Michael Douglas had a very memorable speech after he won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie!
He not only thanked his wife Catherine Zeta Jones, but the Behind The Candelabra actor made a reference to his son Cameron at the end of it when he said he was "hoping they allow me to see him soon."
A lot of people were curious just what Michael meant, and the actor went into further detail

Cameron Douglas, to be exact.
Michael's 34-year-old son has had some legal troubles over the past several years and is expected to be behind bars until 2018 for repeated drug use. Well, apparently his ongoing issues may have driven a wedge between the longtime couple:
Michael Douglas's son still has five more years behind bars before he walks free in 2018, but he's speaking out about his punishment and he clearly doesn't think jail is the right solution for his problem!
Cameron Douglas was sentenced to five years in prison back in 2010 for narcotics distribution, and his sentence was extended when he was caught trying to acquire drugs in prison. While he admits that he has a problem and broke the rules, he feels that he would be better served getting treatment for his addiction rather than rotting behind bars.
The actor's son wrote an essay expressing his frustration, saying:
In a new interview, Michael Douglas talked A LOT about his new family, yet not much about his old family, and even brought up his super famous movie star of a father - Kirk Douglas!
Who's 96 years old!!!
The Behind the Candelabra actor also talked about his health, and how he appreciates life much more now that he's older.
Here's what he said:
