Short answer: No

Long answer: Yes, but...

The DWG-format is deep into licensing issues, theoretically you can set up your computer to be able to write/read DWG drawings (http://www.opendwg.org/), but you'd have to be a member and to pay a licensing fee. There are initiatives in the GNU-project (http://www.gnu.org/software/libredwg/), I'm not sure anything concrete has been achieved yet. There's a nice article outlining the issues at LibreGraphicsWorld. To quote the article:

"While file formats such as STEP (ISO 10303) exist, DWG is still part of far too many production workflows."
