It is possible to plot any function that outputs real values. Typically, a Fourier transform of a real valued function will be a complex valued function. It isn't possible to directly plot a complex valued function. You can plot either the magnitude of the complex values or the phase. That is if
f = FourierTransform[g, t, w];
then
Plot[Abs@f, {w, 0, 2 Pi}]
would plot the magnitude and
Plot[Arg@f, {w, 0, 2 Pi}]
would plot the phase
Alternatively, you could do
Plot[Re@f, {w, 0, 2 Pi}] or
Plot[Im@f, {w, 0, 2 Pi}]
You also might want to look at the packages Graphics`ComplexMap` and Graphics`ArgColors`
