While the intent of the rally is to protest the courts refusal to

I also direct your attention to the following URL site. It is on the
DEA web site and has the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 in all
its bureacratic glory and meanderings. In it it addresses
registration and who has to register and why and under what
conditions. I recommend reading it over before proceeding further on
the registration question.
Secondly, the authors of the short and long versions of the problems
with registration at the web site of http://www.commonsenselaw.com
allow they are not attorneys. So their description of what the
problem is about the law and registration and jurisdiction and what
basis was used in enacting the law and what precedents were used are
not qualified legal opinions.
The law as written covers a bunch of chemical and organic mind
bending and physically effecting drugs not just marijuana. One of
the listed drugs is testersterone. So if you are a guy and are
looking to put a little bit more of the tiger in your tank watch
out. You could get arrested for using it.
For a true rendering of the Drug Law and its registration
requirements and the impact on non-registrants and jurisdiction for
prosecution you need an attorney well versed in both federal
criminal drug and constitutional law.
Otherwise, methinks thou doesn't protestest enough.
The best thing is to get all drug laws repealed and save the
taxpayers a couple billion dollars a year in wasted tax money and
needless incarceration of Drug War prisoners and their prison
