    Are you wishing to return as a tourist?

    You'd have to apply for a visa suitable to the intent of your entry into the US. Just because you've served out your ban doesn't necessarily mean you are eligible for any particular visa. I suspect since your intent is to come live here, any non-immigrant visa would be dealt with a lot of skepticism. You omitted the reasons for your deportation to begin with. You would probably be best served by giving all of your information to an immigration attorney.

    From what you've told us, I am not optimistic of your chances.

    (a) You have told us that you're a convicted drug dealer, which normally would mean that your chance of legally reentering the U.S. hovers at roughly 0%.

    (b) You cannot jump back into LPR status - you would have to start the entire process from the beginning. You can discuss with your mother the possibility of her sponsoring you as an unmarried child over the age of 21 (assuming you're unmarried), but that preference category has a very long wait.
