Jaycee Chan has been jailed six months by a Beijing court for drug offenses including sheltering others who use drugs. This charge makes him sound a little more like a philanthropical criminal. He saw displaced stoners in the street and told them “hey, I have a really dank zone you can come toke up at.”

Chan was apparently spotted by police last August smoking marijuana in a massage parlor with Taiwanese actor Kai Ko. Later his home in Dongcheng District was raided, and investigators found 100g of the drug. The trial took place at Beijing Dongcheng People’s Court and was broadcasted live on Sino Weibo.

This ruling is an example of the recent crackdown on immoral activity committed by celebrities. Many people in the entertainment industry have recently been detained from drug use, prostitution, and gambling.

Following his time behind bars, he may also find it difficult to find work in China's booming entertainment market as many companies in the media industry have agreed to blacklist any celebrity involved in illicit activities.
