Painting Pressure Treated Wood ?

Hello,
Can one paint directly over a piece of pressure treated wood to be used outdoors (the greenish stuff) ?
If a primer is needed, might you please recommend one (Brand and type ?)
Latex O.K. for outdoors ? Or, would an oil based be "substantially" better ? Or,... ?
Thanks, Bob

.Solid color stain would be better. You should wait 6 to 12 months.

Never use latex on PT, oil is OK. If you do paint, use any good oil based exterior primer first but wait for weeks/months so the PT is dry. As Pawloski said, stain is better.
