drilling through basement support post
 
I want to pull wire through a 6x6 post that holds up a weight bearing beam in the basement. Can I drill a 1/2" inch vertically through the post and be in code and structural compliance?

Got a picture?

Don't have a picture handy. The post is 6x6 and about 6' tall - holding up a support beam. I would like to drill a 1/2" hold horizontally so I can pull a 14-2 wire through to a light switch.
