The rule of thumb for brokerage firms is to disallow shorting of stocks below $5 in share price due to their volatility. Additionally, for shares to be available to be rehypothecated and loaned out for shorting purposes they must be owned at brokerage firms on margin.
Federal Reserve Board regulations prevent over-the-counter bulletin board stocks like GrowLife from being purchased on margin, thus making them ineligible to be legally shorted
