In brief: Not really

Oxazepam is and benzodiazepine and works on gaba receptors.
Marijuana has its own receptors. On the other hand, marijuana withdrawal, if such exists, might present with anxiety and Oxazepam will help for that. If you say you're withdrawing from marijuana, where you depressed to begin with?
