    (a) Whenever any person who has not previously been convicted of a violation of chapter sixty-a of this code or a violation of the provisions of this article or under any statute of the United States or any state relating to controlled substances or methamphetamine precursors is charged with possession of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine or phenylpropanolamine in violation of subdivision (1), subsection (a), section four of this article, he or she may move the court to defer further proceedings and to be placed on probation under such terms and conditions as the court deems appropriate. Should the court find that the person possessed three and six-tenths grams of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine or phenylpropanolamine or less which had been lawfully purchased in the jurisdiction of sale and that the person possessed the ephedrine, pseudoephedrine or phenylpropanolamine with the intent that it be used in the manner and form intended by the manufacturer, the court shall defer further proceedings and place the person on probation.

    (b) Upon violation of a term or condition, the court may enter an adjudication of guilt and proceed as otherwise provided. Upon fulfillment of the terms and conditions, the court shall discharge the person and dismiss the proceedings against him or her. Discharge and dismissal under this section shall be without adjudication of guilt and is not a conviction for purposes of this section or for purposes of disqualifications or disabilities or sentencing enhancements imposed by law upon conviction of a crime. The effect of the dismissal and discharge shall be to restore the person in contemplation of law to the status he or she occupied prior to arrest. No person as to whom a dismissal and discharge have been effected shall be thereafter held to be guilty of perjury, false swearing or otherwise giving a false statement by reason of his or her failure to disclose or acknowledge his or her arrest or trial in response to any inquiry made of him or her for any purpose. There may be only one discharge and dismissal under this section with respect to any person.

    (c) After a period of not less than six months, which shall begin to run immediately upon the expiration of a term of probation imposed upon any person under this chapter, the person may apply to the court for an order to expunge from all official records all recordations of his or her arrest, trial and conviction, pursuant to this section. If the court determines after a hearing that the person during the period of his or her probation and during the period of time prior to his or her application to the court under this section has not been guilty of any serious or repeated violation of the conditions of his or her probation, it shall order the expungement.;

    And,

    By striking out the enacting section and inserting in lieu thereof a new enacting section, to read as follows:

    That §60A-10-8 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be repealed; that §60A-2-210 and §60A-2-212 of said code be amended and reenacted; that §60A-10-2, §60A-10-3, §60A-10-4, §60A-10-5 and §60A-10-7 of said code be amended and reenacted; and that said code be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §60A-10-4a, all to read as follows:.

    Senator Miller, from the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, submitted the following report, which was received:

    Your Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development has had under consideration

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 42 (originating in the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance conduct a study of topics related to permit requirements for farmers market vendors, including the suitability of the permits, licenses and certifications required to vend at a farmers market, as well as the appropriateness of the fees scale for the permits and their transferability across county lines.

    Whereas, The Legislature recognizes a rising and existing consumer-driven market interested in purchasing locally grown food, which keeps food dollars circulating in the state’s economy; and

    Whereas, Farmers markets are critical incubators for small farm and food businesses because they offer an accessible, entry-level market for reaching consumers directly; and

    Whereas, The number of farmers markets and the variety of products sold at farmers markets in West Virginia has increased significantly in the past ten years; and

    Whereas, One study by the West Virginia Farmers Market Association found that the state’s roughly ninety farmers markets contributed over $4 million to the state’s economy in just a six-month period, from July to December, 2012; and

    Whereas, One study by the West Virginia Food and Farm Coalition finds that increasing West Virginia farm production to meet the state’s in-season demand for fresh fruit and vegetables would create over one thousand seven hundred jobs and add over $120 million to the state’s economy; and

    Whereas, A 2013 study by the West Virginia Food and Farm Coalition and the West Virginia Farmers Market Association finds that permit fees and requirements for farmers market vendors can vary widely from county to county, and sometimes from one regulatory official to the other. A survey conducted as part of this study found forty-three percent of vendors reporting significant variation in requirements from county to county; and

    Whereas, Current food establishment permit categories are not designed for farmers markets and their vendors, but rather for restaurants, grocery stores or concessioners; and

    Whereas, A 2012 study by the West Virginia Farmers Market Association finds that farmers market vendors average just $152 in sales on any given market day; and

    Whereas, Permits required for farmers market vendors are currently not recognized across county lines, putting additional regulatory and fiscal burdens on vendors selling in more than one county; and

    Whereas, The Legislature has found that encouraging locally grown and raised food is important to protect the health and welfare of the citizens of West Virginia; and

    Whereas, The Legislature recognizes the importance of strengthening our local and regional food systems for local and regional economic development and health; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study permit requirements for farmers market vendors, including the suitability of the permits, licenses and certifications required to vend at a farmers market, as well as the appropriateness of the fees scale for permits and their transferability across county lines; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2015, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.

    And reports the same back with the recommendation that it be adopted; but with the further recommendation that it first be referred to the Committee on Rules.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                               Ronald F. Miller,

                                 Chair.
