    Nice way to put it jad. Now I understand.

    What if someone added additional light fixtures to that one fixture that's on 14 gauge wire? Would that pose a risk? In other words if they added 6 or 7 high hats to that fixture.

    Don't follow my advice, I only know a thing or two about a thing or two.

    As long as any wiring you add is adequate for the CB you have installed, you should be okay. To daisy-chain a bunch of lights, you wouldn't want to then switch to the small gauge wire they use internally - it must comply with the main circuit's requirements.
