In an action seeking a declaration that the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) did not apply to plaintiffs' planned cultivation of cannabis pursuant to licenses they obtained from the State of North Dakota, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where the Supreme Court's decision in Gonzales v. Raich, 545 U.S. 1 (2005), disposed of plaintiffs' argument that the CSA could not be interpreted to reach their intrastate cultivation and processing of cannabis without violating the Commerce Clause.
