(b) A person convicted of a felony described in paragraph (a) of this subsection, of possession or delivery of marijuana or a marijuana item as defined in ORS 475B.015 (Definitions for ORS 475B.010 to 475B.545) constituting a Class B felony, or of a Class A felony pursuant to ORS 166.720 (Racketeering activity unlawful), has successfully completed a sentence of probation; and
