   Consider the following possibility. A shipment of 200 mg of MDMA, and
200 mg of methamphetamine, comes in the same say. They are mislabeled
and stored. The monkeys are dosed with the methamphetamine instead of
the MDMA. Even if someone does a daily inventory of the safe, it appears
the correct amounts of both drugs are there.
