#1 I'm surprised they were convicted. After all, it's their culture, dontcha know.

#2 Whipping?

Seems drug use is it's own punishment.

#3 interestingly alcohol wasn't against sharia until about 1200 or so (in the time of Averoes, about 1150, drinking alcohol was OK if you didn't get drunk and go into the mosque that way); the ban against taking drugs is even today not contrary to some Sharia law systems
