    The Cambridge License Commission is recommending that Harvard Square's Hong Kong restaurant's owner is punished after two of his employees allegedly consumed marijuana-laced gummy bears, according to Wicked Local Cambridge

    Last month two Hong Kong employees allegedly shared the marijuana-laced gummies. Cambridge police responded when they received a report that one of the employees was distressed. 

    "She was freaking out and talking nonsense," said officer Matthew Grassi. 

    The woman was transported to a hospital and the other Hong Kong employee, a manager who gave her the gummies, was arrested and charged with distribution. 

    Hong Kong restaurant owner Paul Lee says he fired the manager, but the Cambridge License Commission is not satisfied with Lee's actions and will vote on his punishment at the commission's next meeting on Dec.7.
