How would I generate a mixture distribution that takes on the value 0 with probability w and draws a value from the normal distribution with probability (1-w)?

The MixtureDistribution[] function only allows all continuous distributions or all discrete distributions :(

I'd like to generate a distribution object so I can call functions like Mean[] and Median[] on it.
