chain tension

What are the possible hazards of having a drive chain tension that's too loose? I'm wondering because I have a Puch Maxi that the drive chain seems a bit loose, but when I tightened it (by pulling the wheel back) it was making a terrible grinding noise, so I put the wheel forward again. It runs fine and it's not TOO bad, but I thought I'd see if this could cause any terrible damage... or if anybody might know what that rattling/grinding noise was (seemed to be coming from the front sprocket when chain was tight).

Thanks!
