It depends which screen lock you have chosen. If you use the pattern or pin lock etc then the widget options are greyed out. If you choose the swipe option which has no security then the options to add widgets to your lock screen should not be greyed out.

Hope that helps,

Jon

Check the play store for widget locker. It will let you add widgets and still keep your pattern/pin code security.
