The movie The House I live in, describes the war on drugs as black hats vs white hats basically the good guys against the bad guys.

Because of sensationalized murder, the upper class began to worry about the affects of sensationalized murder on juveniles and a moral panic ensued. According to Cohen, a moral panic is registered as a threat to the established order and results in public hysteria.
