      And counted so every vial is accounted for.   Remember,  ecstasy
is schedule 1 and methamphetamine is schedule 2.

      I don't recall anything similar even for nonscheduled drugs,
much less for a a schedule 1 "narcotic".      To give them the benefit
of the doubt- there are so many controls on these drugs that everybody
concerned likely just assumed that nothing like this was possible.
