The Slovakian government has approved an amendment that would remove CBD from the country’s list of psychotropic substances. The draft amendment on narcotics, psychotropic substances and preparations was approved by the government during a meeting on Wednesday.
The amendment now goes to the Parliament for a vote.
“The Slovak Republic is the only member state of the European Union that still has cannabidiol (CBD) in the list of narcotic and psychotropic substances,” the Ministry of Health said in a statement. “With the . . . amendment to the law, we propose to remove cannabidiol from the list. This is good news for our citizens.”
This is the second time such an amendment has gone to the Parliament for a vote in Slovakia, almost having reached a second reading two years ago before being voted down in the parliamentary health committee.
