(Newser) – Michael Douglas hasn't seen son Cameron, who's in solitary confinement, in a year—and he's been told he won't be able to see him for two more years, he revealed at the Emmys. So Tony Papa, a Drug Policy Alliance activist and an advocate for Douglas, has launched a campaign in the hopes of getting Eric Holder to agree father and son can reunite. The younger Douglas' sentence is "excessive and unjust," Papa tells Radar, and his father "is being punished for his son's drug addiction."
