The three-day conference known as the 19th Annual Symposium of the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS) is scheduled to have 250 researchers worldwide attend from July 8 to July 11 at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois.
Topics discussed (warning: PDF) will be scientific based analysis of the therapeutic use of cannabinoids to treat numerous conditions:

Vanderbilt University has a page dedicated to their endocannabinoid research with links to abstracts of their specific papers on the topic, it will satisfy your daily quota of medical jargon.
If the happy ending you’re used to resembles the video above, don’t sweat it. If not, we’ll keep everyone updated when new information is released.
