Go to the layer properties manager and select the appropriate layer from the list. Scroll your view along to the right until you see the VP lineweight layer description.

Note that viewports can display objects with different properties which are unique to that viewport.

A good example of this is layers which can appear on or off in different viewports. This is how viewports are often used to show different aspects of a drawing such as small power, lighting etc.
