There is probably a good reason the command cannot
be used with weights. N.B. "cannot take weights" means
it can't take weights (no puede lo usar) and "can not take 
weights" means it can be run without weights (puede no
lo usar). I apologize if the translation makes no sense.

If you expand data to cheat the command, you will
get incorrect results (notably, the std errors will be 
WAY off if you've got, say, pweights).

That said, you can just
. gen double newwt=round(oldwt,1)
. expand newwt
. locpoly yvar xvar
if you want to run a weighted locpoly, for example.

I want to use a command that can not be used along with weghts. 
Do you know how to expand the base?
