(1) Back empty delivery trucks up to Pfizer factories.
(2) Fill trucks with cartons of newly-produced drugs.
(3) Drive north on the nearest interstate and cross the Canadian border; allow drugs to be bathed in mysterious Canadian "cheap-o-rays".
(4) Turn trucks around, drive south, unload drugs in U.S. warehouses.
