You must specify weights whenever you want them. 

Strictly, you specify them as weights, not as options. 
Options are whatever follows the first comma on a command 
line. Weights are specified before options. 

The opposite kind of syntax is evidently possible, but 
it is not Stataish. The only exception to this that 
I can think of, which is not really an exception, is
that if you -expand- using frequency weights all subsequent
commands are as if they were frequency weighted.
