Cannabis etiquette is the set of conventional rules of behavior when consuming cannabis.


"Bogarting" is holding a joint for too long without actually smoking, therefore wasting the cannabis and possibly preventing others from also consuming.[1][2]

Similar to 'Bogarting', there is a common phrase so as to avoid individuals 'bogarting' the joint, it is common etiquette to "Puff, Puff, Pass.". Meaning for everyone to take a toke or two (hence the second iteration of 'Puff') from the joint and pass it on, especially when smoking in a circle so that ideally no one misses out.[citation needed]
