for crime social action theory was just labelling theory. so they say an act isnt criminal o deiant until it is labelled criminal or deviant. you can use the example of the marijianua users to show they lived in peace with the community then they were labelled as deviant by the police. 

other theorists to use are stan cohen, howard becker and cicourel.
