Subject   st: how to generate a variable where one third of values would be randomly assigned

Dear all,
I use stata 11 and I need to generate a variable where two thirds of observations (about 1300 obs) will be equal to 120 and the rest of the values are randomly assigned, but are all integers and less than 120.
Any advice will be very much appreciated,
Ekaterina
