Granted, I was already too old by the time marijuana came on the scene-- but it was my impression this referred to Bogart's habit of always having that butt plastered in his lips....(like the stereotypical French workingman in films of the 40s/50s), you kept the cigarette/joint in your lips, it was burning down, but you weren't actually smoking it.....?
