"bogart" has nothing to do with Humphrey Bogart. All such definitions are merely passed along out of error. At Folsom prison in California the habit of putting your arm around the food to keep others from takin it was called "bowlguarding". From Folsom it spread to other prisons and into the general population. This expression compressed to "bogart" and perfectly extended to hogging a marijuana joint. It is a prison term and much precedes the 1976 song where it first became commonly heard generally outside of California.

1.
(slang verb) To keep something all for oneself, thus depriving anyone else of having any. A slang term derived from the last name of famous actor Humphrey Bogart because he often kept a cigarette in the corner of his mouth, seemingly never actually drawing on it or smoking it. Often used with weed or joints but can be applied to anything.

Humphrey Bogart smoked all those cigarettes. He died from lung cancer. When you hang onto a joint and let it burn without sharing, you look like Bogart with his perennial smoke dangling from his lips. The term had no popularity until it became a hit song in the 1970's.
Don't Bogart That Joint
Lyrics: Lawrence Wagner
Music: Elliot Ingber

Played by Little Feat's Paul Barrere and Bill Payne with Phil & Friends. The original verson (on the soundtrack of "Easy Rider") was by Fraternity Of Man. It was subsequently covered by Little Feat.

Chorus
Don't bogart that joint my friend
Pass it over to me
Don't bogart that joint my friend
Pass it over to me

Roll another one
Just like the other one
You've been holding on to it
And I sure will like a hit

chorus

Roll another one
Just like the other one
That one's burned to the end
Come on and be a real friend

chorus
