In this case, it appeared to be an overdose of the active ingredient that did most of the damage. The doctors commented that some, but not all of his symptoms were in line with a dextromethorphan overdose.
So, he didn't do anything wrong, he took too much and freaked out and the writer of the article just got caught up in the fact that the kid made something that used lighter fluid and ammonia.

Nearly every article on DXM that I have encountered has been almost pure sensationalism. This is one such example!

Why don't you open up, we'll talk,
I am ready, I am ready for a fall.

So some nub tried an extraction and fucked up his chemistry. Big deal, people overdose/die on chemicals all the time. This is nothing new.

If he was harmed from, say, ingesting half a can of lighter fluid, then would people be screaming to ban lighter fluid? No, they'd all say "Wow, what an idiot. Lighter fluid still rules for making fire, though."

Even with a basic knowledge of the ingredients I don't think extractions are that dangerous. Just know your chemicals (not many are involved) and what to look for. Although I wouldn't say im the average joe, I'm definitely no chemist.

old news but i thought it was funny that the article focused on the chemicals used to extract the dxm, when it was the dxm that did most of the damage.

Ah, there’s nothing like the hot winds of Hell blowing in your face
