Typically, drug use is considered a "public order" crime since it interferes with the operations of society and the ability of people to function efficiently.

TexCrimLawyer, J.D. :

Clearly, mafia activity is the traditional example of organized crime. The Organized Crime Control Act defines organized crime as: "The unlawful activities of [...] a highly organized, disciplined association [...]." The mafia is known for its top-down structure and orginization, with bosses, captains, and street level people.
