"The only choice is to stay away from drugs" - Jackie Chan
On getting Chan to be Singapore’s first celebrity anti-drug ambassador, Mr Masagos said: “Despite his very busy work schedule, Jackie devotes a tremendous amount of time and effort to philanthropic causes. When I first met him and asked him to lend his support to Singapore’s anti-drug efforts, he agreed without any hesitation.”
Chan said that when he was approached by the Singapore Government to be its anti-drug ambassador, his response was: “When?”
He said: “I have a lot of affinity with Singapore. I like a systematic way of doing things and I like how Singapore is very organised and follows the law strictly. “I am usually very, very busy, but I flew here just for this. I love Singapore and I am happy to be given the chance to serve the people here.” -

Jackie was appointed the first celebrity Anti-Drug Ambassador for Singapore while attending the launch of a mobile game called Aversion. The game was developed through a collaboration between the Preventive Education Unit , Central Narcotics Bureau and the Nanyang Polytechnic School of Interactive & Digital Media. Final year student from the university were the primary developers of the game and it was launched at a well-attended function at the university. Jackie is the Anti-Drug Ambassador in China as well. He has spoken about the three rules his father gave him - no triads, no gambling, no drugs - many times. It is hoped that the game will educate and increase awareness amongst Singapore youth about the dangers of drug use.
