The Troy High School Band Wanted Us To Apologize For Calling Them Stoners. So Here’s Us Doing That.

The Troy High School Band Wanted Us To Apologize For Calling Them Stoners. So Here’s Us Doing That.

TROY, OH – After the Miami County Bugle Caller’s reporting on the recent changes to the Troy Strawberry Festival, a select few citizens had specific concerns regarding our reporting and journalistic integrity. Here at the Bugle Caller, we value our integrity more than anything, so it’s important from time to time that we clear the air.

Specific concerns were raised by one Troy High School senior music staff member over a comment which read that “the band kids are pretty stoned when they make (the donuts).” The information was included based on real information gathered by our highly qualified field journalists, who definitely hot boxed one Troy High School band member’s car with him last February. This same student said on the record that “getting absolutely cheesed is the only way to survive band camp without going insane.”

Regardless, we want to make it absolutely clear that the students are not under the influence of marijuana when making donuts for the Strawberry Festival. They are not “lighting up doobies” or “ripping pipes” or “making gravity bongs out of the donut making equipment” or “making their own special THC-infused donuts.” They would never “make a Coke can bowl” or “bring a dab rig in their car and take hits during their bathroom breaks”, nor would members of the Troy High School Band “introduce a gateway drug to the underclassmen“ by any means. We would find it foolish to think that teenagers would ever get stoned before some high school event they were forced to participate in during the early hours of the morning.

Gas mask bongs wouldn’t even be usable in a cooking environment, and the fryers likely get so hot you would want to take the masks off anyway. And the logistic problems you’d run into trying to make an edible in that environment would make it all but impossible. And to accuse these kids, who work day in and day out to entertain their community with the utmost professionalism and dignity. This is not to say NO Troy High School Marching Band Members have ever partaken in illicit substances, as we know that would not be true. And as stated before, we value journalistic integrity more than anything.

The reality is, it’s much too difficult to get the really good sticky stuff in Troy. There’s simply no way the band members could be as ripped off their ass as we previously claimed, not with the mids they’re selling in Troy, and for this error we truly apologize. We hope you’ll continue to support both our organization, as well as the Troy High School Band in the coming years, especially in these unprecedented times.

    I find this claim laughable considering the “highly qualified journalist” claims to have smoked pot with a band member and won’t give his or her name. That’s not integrity.

    My daughter is in Troy Band and says band camp is not as bad as this article portrays. Discipline doesn’t appear to be something this “journalist” knows much about so I’d take his or her characterization of band camp with a grain of salt.

    Finally, why was this article written? What was the specific point the author was trying to make? And why was a stock photo used instead of a real picture of a high school band member? The person in the picture is not a Troy Band member, nor is the person behind him.

    I’m not sure what is so titillating or fascinating about pot usage. The “journalist” in this story needs to grow up and stop being a hypocrite. It’s pretty shady to allegedly smoke pot with a band member then turn around and attempt to rat them out. No cool at all.
