Paper and Leaf is the only recreational cannabis retail store located in Bainbridge Island, Washington.

Paper and Leaf believe education and cannabis go hand in hand in lessening the stigma against marijuana. All marijuana retail products of Paper and Leaf include gram bags, ounces, buds, edibles, topicals, pipes, and oils.Brendan Hill is one of the original members of Blues Traveler. In 1983, while attending school at Princeton High School in Princeton, New Jersey, Hill met Blues Traveler harmonica player John Popper. Together, they formed the predecessor to Blues Traveler, Blues Band. This band played mostly at parties and saw numerous bassists and guitarists come and go. In 1987, with the addition of Chan Kinchla on guitar and Bobby Sheehan on bass, they officially renamed themselves “Blues Traveler”. After graduating from Princeton High School, Brendan (along with John and Bobby) enrolled in The New School for Social Research to study music. Hill currently lives on Bainbridge Island, WA and owns a retail marijuana store.
