Such flavors would be banned from July, with the initiative's supporters claiming that cherry, vanilla or mint flavors make young people hooked on nicotine.

Such a ban is already in place in Estonia, and Sweden plans to introduce it next year.

MP Mykolas Majauskas, representative the opposition conservative Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats, proposed the initiative that was alter signed by representatives of all political groups in the Lithuanian Seimas.
