For a drug offense, Tennessee does not afford you all the same options as with other non-violent crimes. An expungement will get you your gun rights back, but you do not qualify for one under Tennessee law.

https://www.tncourts.gov/expungements

That means you'd need a pardon from your governor. If that pardon does not specifically restore your gun rights, you would THEN be eligible to get your felony expunged. That would give you your state and Federal rights back.

The Tennessee Bar Association gives information about obtaining a pardon here:
