Family Code 2210 provides grounds for annulment. You would have a tough time on the facts. Also, you would lose rights to support and property division if those are in issue in your favor.
The law has become uch more strict about the grounds for an annulment, the lie must go to the essence of the marital relationship, such as telling you that he wants children before you are married, and then after you are married, tells you that he doesn't want children.
See the self help center in your county's family court, they will be able to help you.
You may be able to get a summary dissolution, depending on your circumstances, and also depending on whether or not he also wants a divorce.
The lie would have to go to the essence of the marriage. By way of example, he agreed to have children, and he knew he was sterile. Of never consummating the marriage, or continuing a romantic relationship with someone else, and never intending to end that relationship but only wanted a green card.
You would be better off seeking divorce.

I concur with my Avvo colleagues about grounds for annulment though I disagree as to your support and property rights. I do not believe that active (as opposed to dormant) drug addiction can be hidden for 2 years and, thus, I don't believe that you have grounds for annulment.
