I see your problem. 

twoway scatter weight price, by(foreign) ymla(3500 "hello", labsize(*2)
ang(h)) ytitle("")

is one kludge.

Thank you Martin and Nick for your responses,

I tried using the orientation sub-option but when producing graphs with 
a by- option it didn't seem to register and kept it the default
For example:
twoway (scatter weight price), by(foreign) ytitle("hello", 
I am unsure where to put the text or subtitle option so it doesn't put 
it in both graphs, as for example:
twoway (scatter weight price), by(foreign) text(5050 5050 "hello")
