look up any word, like tribbing:
The traditional slang definition of "Bogart":

To hold on to a joint too long without passing it on. Comes from the fact that Humphrey Bogart used to smoke like a train in his movies. So the person holding on to the joint too long is said to be "bogarting" it.

Other people may use this word for other purposes nowadays, but this is the traditional slang definition. Its use in this context was probably first documented in popular culture in the 1968 song "Don't Bogart Me" by The Fraternity of Man, featured in the "Easy Rider" soundtrack
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.
This one's burnt to the end
Come on and be a friend.

The term 'Bogart' as it has been defined here only exemplifies part of the meaning. It has nothing to do specifically with 'hogging' a joint or smoking in general.

It is a VERB describing an act of boldness and fearlessness as was exhibited by Bogart in most of his film roles.
You Bogart your way into your boss' office when you don't care what the secretary says. You 'Bogart' your way into traffic when no one will let you into your lane and you 'Bogart' a joint when you could care less that anyone else is waiting for a hit.
This is the real origin of the term, "Don't Bogart that joint."
If you think you're just going to 'Bogart' me around like this, you are mistaken.

To keep for oneself, to hog or not share.
Phrase from Country Joe and the Fish's song way back when, "Don't bogart that joint my friend, pass it over to me."

1. to greedily covet something to the point of paranoia, even when among friends;
2. to knowingly and covertly attempt to consume a larger share of the communal weed than is proper, at the expense of one's homeboys/girls.


Refers to characteristics displayed by the actor Humphrey Bogart in his portrayal of Fred Dobbs in the 1948 motion picture, 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.' Dobbs is selfish and distrustful of his friends and attempts to hoard for himself the gold that he and his companions discover while prospecting in Mexico.
In the movie, Bogart's character, Dobbs, and his two prospecting buddies strike gold! The minute they do, however, Dobbs becomes super greedy, selfish, and paranoid. When he is the one selected to go into town for supplies, he freaks out:

Dobbs: Why am I elected to go to the village? Why me instead of you and Curtin? Oh, don't think I don't see through that. You two've thrown in against me. The two days I'd be gone would give you plenty of time to discover where my goods are, wouldn't it?

Later, they're sitting around a campfire after having split up the gold from their claim. Dobbs is off the reservation at this point and convinced the other two are planning to take his share after he falls asleep:

Dobbs: Let's see, three times 35 - is a hundred and five. I'll bet you 105,000 dollars that you go to sleep before I do...

He is threatening to kill them and take their gold if they fall asleep. In other words, he is bogarting the shit out of that gold.
