What is "Weight"?

I'm fairly new to the urban environment and have never been exposed to the drug culture, but I'm pretty sure I was just offered the chance to buy drugs on my walk from the school to the bus stop. A shady looking fellow casually said the following words to me as I walked by: "I've got about 10 pounds of weight in my coat. I've gotta lighten my load."

Now maybe I'm just reading into that statement and stereotyping this man, but I really don't think so. I'm just not sure what else that phrase might mean. What do you think?
