screaming the joint down


"After about fifteen minutes of Bugs screaming the joint down they said they were going to have to take him to the emergency room to get the roach out."
What does screaming the joint down mean in this sentence?
The scene is a cockroach crawled into a boy's ear, so he kept on screaming. "Bugs" is the nackname of the unlucky boy.
Hope somebody can help me understand this. Thank you!
