    A quick search finds that CVS (and I bet other pharmacies) will mail prescriptions for like a $5 fee.

    Yeah, for starter, they are NOT bear "proof", even when used correctly. Just check out a bear canister website, like the home page of Bear Vault... "Bear Resistant Food Canisters".

    Take some sand paper... perhaps 220 or 300 grit. Sand the entire canister and lid, inside and out. I'm sure you'll be able to drop that extra 1.75 oz off in no time.;)
