Event description

On 1st of November 1 in Lithuania came into effect a proscription on the sale of energy drinks to teenagers. Lithuania became the first country in Europe and in the world to introduce such a proscription. Restrictions relating to soft energy drinks with caffeine more than 150 milligrams per liter. The reason for the adoption of such measures in the government of Lithuania referred to the possible health problems that can cause similar drinks: addictiveness and hyperactivity. Parliamentarians who accepted the law refer to the scholars who argue that energy drinks can stimulate young people to use drugs. Amendment of the Code of Administrative Offences foresees that the sale of energy drinks to persons under 18 years lead to a fine of 200 to 400 litas (from 58 to 116 euros). If the third person will buy energy drinks to minors, they will be punished by a fine of 50 to 200 litas (14-58 euros). According to a recent survey, 10 percent of students in Lithuanian schools regularly use "energy drinks"
