i wan to know the definition of deck as used in the following:

"While taking Smith into custody, officers found a plastic bag containing 42 decks of heroin, police said."

taken from hipsterrunoff.com/2013/09/are-sky-ferreira-and-zachary-cole-smith-diiv-heroin-junkies-indie.html. the quote is said to be taken directly from a police report and cited in other local publications. in the online urban dictionary, one contributor of 65 [username lehem] states that deck means:

"1 to 15 grams of heroin, also known as a bag; packet of drugs"

any ideas? etymology? police procedurals i can check with?
