As is clear from -help meologit-, it does not support weights. If you
are really interested in weighted estimation (and you should be),
you'd have to use -gllamm-. As a devil's advocate, I don't know what
the reference to Snijders & Boskers 2012 is, and what these guys
discuss and suggest, so you would want to elaborate on that. Ignoring
the sampling design will almost definitely give you wrong results.

I would prefer (following the weighting discussion in Snijders & Boskers 2012) not to use weights but at least I want to compare the results.
