In 2011, Slovak parliament ruled CBD into Group 2 of the Psychotropic Substances Act, which means that the handling, import and export from the Slovak Republic requires the consent of the Ministry of Health. However, the ruling was actually for the drug Sativex, which contains both THC and CBD. Slovak parliament claimed they were unaware that Sativex contained any CBD but still refused to remove the cannabinoid from Group 2.

In practice, Slovak journalists tend to avoid the drug problem and routinely practice self-censorship, or cover drug-related topics purely from the criminal point of view. Section 174 of the Criminal Law was used on 17 March 2010 to file a complaint at the police which started investigating the fact, that the new political party Freedom and Solidaritypublished its intention to decriminalize cannabis in its program statement before the 2010 parliamentary election. The case was finally dismissed on 4 May 2010.
