Pardon my ignorance but what exactly is the purpose of a "gang"? Is it simply a loosely connected organization to help facilitate the selling of drugs?

No, not necessarily. I think in general police parlance, a gang is a group of people who congregrate with the intent of committing any crime, be it selling drugs, property crimes, vandalism, whatever. Some cities have even passed injunctions to prevent known gang members from associating with one another.
