If the term 'gear' is used, is this a general term for drugs or a particular drug?

I have always thought it was used for heroin rather than a generic term for drugs, but there may be regional differences.

Usually heroin, although some young eejits don't realise this and use it to refer to their soapbar hash

I think of heroin

Have heard people refer to cannabis as gear though
