1) Note however that these are not double hurdle models for _count_
data - where in my experience these are typically used (hurdle models
are mixed outcome models with a binary first outcome for participation
in an activity, and a truncated positive count outcome for amount of
participation; double hurdle models are non-negative counts in the
second outcome - entry with zero amount of participation is allowed):
Recommended paper if you are interested in double hurdles.

You can, very easily, fit independent double hurdle models in Stata:
Replace -ztnb- with -nbreg- or any other univariate count regression command.

2) Of course if you only want (independent) hurdle models - which is
typically the case - because it is count data, Joseph Hilbe has
numerous routines to do this:
ssc install hplogit
ssc install hnbreg
ssc install hgclg
ssc install hglogit
ssc install hnbclg

3) Dependent hurdle/double hurdle models are trickier; -gllamm-

ssc install gllamm, replace

 is one possible solution. Writing your own -ml- routine is another. I
don't think -cmp- (D. Roodman, SSC) supports count outcomes (?), else
that would be ideal.

4) The code provided is for continuous outcomes.

To every ω-consistent recursive class κ of formulae there correspond
recursive class signs r, such that neither v Gen r nor Neg(v Gen r)
belongs to Flg(κ) (where v is the free variable of r).
